CPHHS Club Spotlight
Oregon State Society of Healthcare Executives/Society of Healthcare Administrators
The Society of Healthcare Executives (SHE) and the Society of Healthcare Administrators (SHA) are two student-run organizations that have combined efforts to better serve Oregon State University students. This hybrid club provides students interested in healthcare management opportunities for professional development, networking, and volunteer work. SHE/SHA is focused on connecting students with industry professionals, faculty, and other students within the Healthcare Management and Policy Program. SHE/SHA is the premier resource for students within the Healthcare Management and Policy major looking to narrow down their career interests and develop a vast professional network along the way.
The club meets on odd weeks on Tuesdays at 6:00pm in Waldo 400. For more information, contact Ryley Martin (SHE/SHA President) at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 email@example.com or 949-292-0934 for more information.
