Students from the University of Washington School of Nursing are helping to improve the health of women and children across the world through Global Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children (Global WACh), a growing research and education center on the UW Campus. This year, Global WACh students completed projects in Nepal, Uganda, Ethiopia, and Seattle, focused on topics like nutrition, family planning, preventing mother-to-child HIV and adolescent health. On June 4th, the center will celebrate the work of these students at “The Next Big Thing.” The event will include scholar and poster presentations, and will allow attendees to learn more about the great work of this center.
