Our lives are better, thanks to WSU

When it comes to health, think of the pandemic: WSU health sciences faculty and students fanned out across the state to test and vaccinate. But that was just the most recent expression of the university’s longtime focus on improving health care and health equity for rural and underserved populations. The colleges of medicine, nursing and pharmacy all have programs to encourage graduates to practice in small towns that typically struggle to attract healthcare professionals. WSU Health Sciences has deep connections with the state’s indigenous populations.
“All science struggles to communicate its influence,” said Keane, WSU’s vice president of research. “That’s especially hard when a large public university has high-impact research in so many areas,” as WSU does. “But it’s important that people understand the work we do leads to better outcomes across all aspects of their lives.”
Better health, better sleep, better food – a better life, thanks to WSU.
