Institute of Health Improvement Club

The IHI Open School Chapter here at OSU is a student-led club focused on advancing the safety and quality of care that is delivered in all healthcare settings around the world. As a club, they are dedicated to learning about the science of improvement and how to apply those principles to a real-life problem. The club’s mission is to provide members with an opportunity to engage in these principles so they can carry them into their careers. This is achieved through open discussions on healthcare, case studies, and guest speakers. This upcoming fall term there will be weekly meetings over Zoom open to anyone interested. If you are interested, be sure to email their President or Larry Gilley and get added to their Canvas page. In addition, be sure to check out their Facebook and Instagram!

Virtually Volunteer with Salem-Keizer school district ASPIRE

Do you like working with high school kids? Looking for mentorship opportunities? Volunteer to work with high school students and help them navigate their post-graduation plans! ASPIRE, a mentoring program that helps students access education and training beyond high school is looking for volunteers; no experience necessary. After a quick application and training, you will be matched with a high school student to mentor as they prepare for life after graduation. You could help with the college search and application process, planning for post-life graduation, and more. Most mentors meet at least 15 minutes with a student, once per week for seniors and once every 2-4 weeks for juniors; but meeting times and durations will be worked out between the volunteer and the student! They’re looking for volunteers to begin ASAP, so reach out to Sarah Muir, college and career coach at Early College High School and Roberts High School, if you are interested! You can also reach out to Chad Kuwana in CPHHS for more details.
