Students in our health sciences programs held a health fair this week, offering free flu shots, cholesterol tests, health screenings and more.
The next generation of health care professionals are all around us here in Spokane. Elementary, middle and high school students will someday be part of our health care workforce.
That’s why we bring them to campus any chance we get. Last week, more than 100 area high school students visited our lovely campus to learn about the health science programs we offer.
As one of several universities with a presence in Spokane, we were represented in the video above, which was seen by more than 1,000 in attendance at GSI’s annual meeting. Here are five ways our campus grows our economy:
Before we can apply for medical school accreditation, and before we can begin recruiting medical students, we must hire a dean for the soon-to-be-named WSU College of Medicine.
In May, we announced the search committee tasked with finding the first dean of the WSU College of Medicine.
That committee’s work should be complete within the next few weeks.
Ignite Northwest, a business accelerator located on our campus and an important partner of ours, recently won a $50,000 grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Ignite will also welcome its first class of ten companies to begin courses this fall that include mentoring, and other aspects of building a business.
WSU Spokane was the setting this week for the TEAM Conference, a two-day event that brought first responders and mental health professionals together to discuss ways our community can work together on issues of mental health.
Research from our campus played a big role in having the conference on campus.
