Crews brought down most of the Perione Warehouse on campus this morning as demolition work begins at the site of the future University District Health Clinic.
Our academic programs tout teamwork and an inter-professional approach to health care.
So it’s no wonder we’d want to walk the talk. We have a terrific track record of working with community organizations, and we continue to do so with Gonzaga University, The Center for Justice, Empire Health Foundation and Providence Health Care.
This team – which we are proud to be part of – is working to bring health and legal services to low-income families.
Studies show those in lower income environments are more prone to poor health because they don’t have access to the care they need. They also may lack access to the legal services that may be needed.
Law students and medical residents will use teamwork to pinpoint those that need health and legal services and address them.
Teamwork produces great results. There’s no need for us or Gonzaga to build a wall on our sides of the Spokane River. It’s better for the community for us to build bridges and become a team. This is exactly what we’re doing with this new medical-legal partnership
Lindsey Miller – an Assistant Clinical Professor in our Nutrition and Exercise Physiology program – was recently on Health Matters, a show on KSPS that explores health topics.
Miller was one of four guests that talked about maintaing a healthy lifestyle during the holiday season.
Last week, the WSU Board of Regents met in Spokane and among the items it took action on was the approval of the design of the University District Health Clinic, which will be built on our campus. The clinic is part of the Spokane Teaching Health Center, a consortium of WSU Spokane, Providence Health Care and Empire Health Foundation.
The clinic will be a teaching site for medical residents.
