ETCH (Education Transforming Community Health) is recruiting new volunteers!

ETCH is an
interdisciplinary student project associated SHIFA, a non-profit organization
based out of UWSOM. We offer weekly health education sessions to homeless
adults in downtown Seattle, striving to create health education curriculum that
bridges evidence-based practice and the voices of the many homeless communities
in Seattle.  We aim to provide knowledge, skills, and tools to improve the
quality of life of our participants. 

sessions offer volunteers a great opportunity to connect with members of
homeless communities while expanding your knowledge of preventative care,
health systems, and social justice. We ask that volunteers participate in at least one session
per month for at least 6 months – with many more opportunities for
volunteering, advocacy, and leadership.  

This is an
excellent opportunity to get involved, regardless of experience. If you are
interested in joining, email for more information!

Come to our
first meeting on November 23rd at 5:30 pm with
 a medical student
volunteer from SHIFA!

Hope to see you
