Foster High School Summer University

By: Alexandra de Leon Date: July 18th, 2023

The HIPRC in collaboration with Seattle Children’s, Harborview Medical Center, Washington State University Vancouver, and Public Health – Seattle and King County are working with The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle’s (ULMS) Summer University.

For this year’s program, the HIPRC and community partners will be facilitating four engaged learning sessions on topics including: firearm violence & safety, mental illness & suicide prevention, water safety & drowning prevention, and intimate partner violence & healthy relationships. In addition to these learning sessions, collaborators will help promote a free Lifeguard Certification program.

The purpose of the program is: 

  • To offer career exploration and networking opportunities for students interested in healthcare
  • To educate the students about injury and violence prevention, with a focus on communities of color 
  • To engage the students in hands-on, critical thinking exercises relevant to injury and violence prevention 
  • To provide tools and resources around injury prevention the students can use in their communities
