Big Ideas for Health
Proven health education and research strengths within the colleges of Nursing and Pharmacy, strong programs in the College of Sciences, and world-renowned expertise in the College of Veterinary Medicine put Washington State University in a unique position to leverage our strengths in human and animal health to realize remarkable contributions to advancing health and healthcare worldwide.
As a member of the Washington Global Health Alliance and through recent partnerships with the University of Washington and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, WSU is collaborating with other organizations, both public and private, to improve the lives of people and the animals on which we depend for healthy and productive lives at home and abroad.
It is difficult to have a healthy economy without healthy communities. Since its beginning, WSU has nurtured and cultivated the intricate links among plants, animals, and human health in communities from rural Washington to impoverished Africa. Through the Campaign for WSU, we will make great human and animal health research and programs truly exceptional.
