Trident: How did your experience at Trident allow you to focus on and develop your career?
Josie Miller: While attending Trident I was afforded the opportunity as a student representative to volunteer 12.5-hours of public health service for the Seattle/King County (SKC) Clinic in October 2015. According to the SKC Team, a total of 4,010 patients (majority of which were homeless or from low income households) received over $3 million in health and dental care services. Although I am familiar and have previous experience with community outreach programs, working as a volunteer for the SKC event presented network opportunities with fellow public health peers, as well as introductions to a variety of professional disciplines for future community health resources and opportunities.
