Meet this month’s virtual employee photo contest winners

This May, faculty and staff from across the UW shared photos of how their teams serve the UW community and beyond in a virtual environment.

This month’s winning photo comes from the UW School of Medicine’s Student Affairs team. As their team mugshots show, this team gets it done with the help of a little caffeine in their favorite mugs.

According to their website, this team is, “dedicated to supporting all medical students through their medical student journeys, from matriculation to graduation.” From services in tutoring to career advising to counseling and wellness, this team helps guide students through their journey in medical school and provide them with the support they need.

View our runner-ups in the slide show above.

The UW’s International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) Incident Response Hub team is dedicated to rising to the challenge of COVID-19 and wearing different hats. The team “is coordinating support to approximately 2,000 staff members in 15 countries across Africa, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and Asia.” They receive updates “from each country and problem-solve clinical and operational challenges that emerge from teams implementing comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment across the I-TECH network.”

The DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) team is dedicated to maximizing the potential of individuals with disabilities through technology and education. Together, the DO-IT team “continues to collaborate and share accessible practices using Zoom.”

The Regional Advancement team strives to strengthen the UW’s “relationships with its alumni, donors and friends.” On April 1, they got the chance to meet with Lee Heck, Senior AVP of Development Programs.

During National Library Week, the Health Sciences Library team worked to make a difference by coming together to “advance scholarship, research, education and health care by anticipating information needs, providing essential resources, and facilitating learning for the greater health sciences community.”
