Spotlight on Research
Can electronic reminders help healthcare providers? See what one of our students discovered during her alcohol counseling research. You can also read about triple-negative breast cancer research and the special statistics of clinical trial analysis. You’ll see that our students are one more reason we’re the top-rated school of public health on the West Coast.
Our 2009 Distinguished Alumnus, Fred Rivara ('80, M.P.H., Health Services), talks about his travels down the path of public health. Plus, see what your fellow classmates are up to now. Lastly, we’ve lost three vibrant young alumni in recent months; read their obituaries.
The UW’s performing arts venues and museums are home to more than 280 performances, 60 exhibits and 100 public programs annually.
The University confers more than 12,000 bachelor’s, master’s, doctor's and professional degrees annually.
