Global Health Advocacy Internship
The Fund for Global Health is a nonprofit advocacy organization that seeks to increase global health funding through grassroots lobbying to members of Congress on the SFOPS Appropriations Committees. Oregon’s Senator, Jeff Merkley, is on the Senate SFOPS Subcommittee of Appropriations, and the Fund for Global Health is looking for community members who are interested in engaging with him and his office. Some of the duties include organizing letter-writing campaigns to Senator Merkley, making phone calls to his office, and seeking to set up meetings with him or his staffers, all to encourage him to increase the SFOPS budget for global maternal and child programs, and programs for tuberculosis and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. This is a great opportunity to learn about global health issues, the Congress appropriations process, and how to become engaged with U.S. policy; it is also a chance to have a global impact. The commitment is 10-15 hours per week for four months, with the opportunity to extend. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 949-292-0934 for more information.

OSS Online Appointment Scheduling:
Our new online appointment scheduling system, TimeTrade, is now available to all students with an active ONID username and password to make appointments.
TimeTrade allows students to:
- Schedule an appointment with their assigned academic advisor at http://health.oregonstate.edu/advisors.
- Schedule a 15-minute, 25-minute, or 50-minute appointment based on the type of appointment needed.
- Schedule an appointment up to 6 weeks in advance.
- Schedule, reschedule, or cancel an appointment 24/7 online.
- Schedule a same-day appointment if an appointment is made by 8am.
- A confirmation notification email in their ONID inbox, upon the initial appointment creation. Students also receive a rescheduling or cancellation notification email, upon those events.
- An appointment reminder email 24 hours prior the appointment. If a student schedules an appointment less than 24 hours in advance, they do not receive an email reminder.
- An Outlook and iCal appointment file upon the initial appointment creation. This syncs the appointment to the student’s calendar if applicable.
Please note that if you schedule an appointment with an advisor other than your assigned advisor, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment. If you do not know who your assigned advisor is, you can log in to MyDegrees, which lists your assigned advisor, or you can call us at 541-737-8900, and we will be happy to help you.
