Student Environmental Health Association 2017-2018 Board Applications

My name is Katie Scott and I am the Senior Co-chair for the Student Environmental Health Association (SEHA). We are an RSO for UW students that are in the Environmental Health program, prospective students, or students passionate about environmental health.

In the Students of Environmental Health Association, we aim to provide students with a safe space to cultivate relationships within the community of the Environmental Health major and with those passionate about environmental and public health. We strive to increase the visibility of this field and to support professional development of our peers. As a student-oriented club, we aspire to encourage and challenge people to become better public health professionals.

We have positions open on our SEHA board for the academic year 2017-2018! The applications are due on May 16th, 2017 at 11:59 pm. All applications will be reviewed by current members of the board and we will let you know by May 18th.
