Garnet Anderson’s collaborative research has revolutionized the field of postmenopausal women’s health. She played a leading role in the landmark Women’s Health Initiative (WHI). WHI enrolled 161,000 women in the nation's largest clinical trial and observational study, which tested ways to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis among postmenopausal women. Garnet was a co-leader on the initiative’s trial of estrogen and progestin therapy, which yielded the unexpected finding that the hormones increased the risk of breast cancer, stroke and blood clots. “When I found biostatistics in grad school, it was clear to me how that could play a valuable role in people's lives. It inspired me.”

"As a bilingual and neurodivergent graduate student of occupational therapy, my passion is to dismantle systemic barriers for Spanish-speaking individuals and the autistic & disability community. My role within OT is to help people engage in meaningful activities of daily living and participate in their communities. My Husky experience has prepared me for the lifelong journey to embrace cultural humility, empower my clients to celebrate their strengths, and advocate for inclusive communities."

"While my pursuit of growth has been constant, my current ambitions can be largely attributed to the abundance of resources, opportunities, and models of diverse leadership offered by UW. My interactions and involvements have nurtured an appreciation for vulnerability and transformative story-telling which, in turn, inform my ongoing trajectory of empowering marginalized communities through the advocating of creative (and necessary) reform in education, incarceration, and immigration systems."

The UW facilitates hundreds of programs in communities across the state. Below are a few that operate in your district. Programs active as of January 2023.

Washington Sea Grant

Washington Sea Grant is part of a national network of Sea Grant programs administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. For over 50 years, WSG has funded high impact research projects and partnered with communities, businesses, educators and the public to advance regional understanding and sustainable use of our ocean and coastal resources. Washington Sea Grant strives to support healthy, productive and resilient coastal and marine ecosystems that sustain our state’s diverse cultural and maritime heritage, vibrant coastal communities, clean waters and beaches, prosperous fisheries and aquaculture, and diverse wildlife.

Forefront in the Schools

Forefront in the Schools (FIS), an initiative of the UW’s Forefront Suicide Prevention program, guides high school administrators, students and parents through a collaborative, comprehensive process of policy development and curriculum improvement to build on existing student mental-health and suicide-prevention efforts. FIS aims to create school communities that are prepared to prevent student mental-health problems and respond to students with mental-health needs, including those at risk for suicide.


RISE UP/SKY GEAR UP is a federal grant program that provides middle and high school students from low-income families in the Skagit, Klickitat and Yakima valleys with the support they need to access and succeed in college. Beginning in sixth and seventh grades, students join a program cohort for the next seven years. The program focuses on helping students enter STEM fields, providing tutoring, mentoring, financial aid instruction, college and educational field trips, teacher professional development and parent empowerment.

UW in the High School

Through the UW in the High School program, high school sophomores, juniors and seniors can complete University of Washington courses — and earn college credit — in their own classrooms with their own teachers. Teachers are approved and trained by UW faculty to teach official UW courses using UW curriculum, activities, texts, tests and grading scales. Participating students can earn college credits at a fraction of the cost, and these credits are accepted by most colleges and universities across Washington and around the country. Partner high schools can offer UW coursework in computer science, math, science, world languages, humanities and social sciences. Check out which schools UW in the High School is partnering with in your area.
