Rising Change-makers and Leaders in Health

Three students from the University of Washington’s School of Public Health study local communities and their health experiences. These scholars complete their practicum, internship, or capstone requirement while gaining the opportunity to closely connect with PHPDA grantees. 

Their applied project can identify a specific local population whose health indicators demonstrate health access or outcome disparities, a systemic policy or practice that leads to health inequities, or can focus on an aspect of PHPDA’s grantmaking program and processes. Their deep dive studies provide insight for PHPDA’s grantmaking and funding priorities and processes.
