Congratulations to Teaching Assistant Professor Kay Olson, who received the WSU President’s Award for Health for her work organizing COVID-19 vaccination clinics throughout the region.

Through her efforts, she “advanced the health and safety of the entire community,” the awards committee said.

Working with fellow WSU College of Nursing faculty and students, as well as with students from the WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kay helped vaccinate and test thousands of people.

Thank you Kay!
