Women Who Inspire Us: Our Volunteers
Women's Health Monthly: November 2016
The Center for Women's Health is lucky to have several fantastic volunteers and interns who help us support patients, visitors, and our staff –in our clinic and beyond. This month, we're inspired by these special women who care enough about others to give their time and talent.
Angie Whittington, Special projects intern
"My compass pointed me here," Angie says. After giving birth to her son here, she wanted to be part of OHSU and began her internship at the Center for Women's Health in September. Angie is a Public Health student at Portland State University, and is assisting with a variety of events and projects.
Jessica Kelley, Clinic volunteer
Jessica gets as much out of volunteering as she gives. "I really enjoy interacting with patients and seeing medical professionals in action," she says. After completing her post-baccalaureate studies in pre-medicine earlier this year, Jessica is preparing to apply to medical schools as the next step in becoming a physician.
Lindsey Cochran, Clinic volunteer
Lindsey became a Center for Women's Health volunteer in August. "In my research, I have studied volunteering in Oregon, and what I heard from volunteers inspired me to become one myself," she says. Lindsey is working towards a Ph.D. at the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health.
Cammisha Manley, (former) Special Projects Intern
"After earning my Bachelor's degree in community health education, I interned with the Center for Women's Health to gain experience in a health care setting and gain leadership and collaboration skills," says Cammisha. She has continued to take on progressive responsibility at OHSU, now serving as a social work intern with the OHSU Transgender Health Program.
