Professor of Geography Kathleen Braden with the "Seattle Pacific University Engages Global Health" exhibit at the Seattle Center.
Seattle Pacific University and more than 30 health organizations in Washington state are part of the “Pathways to Global Health” activity tent in the Next 50 Plaza at the Seattle Center. The activity tent offers interactive displays highlighting organizations and educational opportunities in global health. Participants include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Carter Center, World Vision, and the University of Washington. SPU’s exhibit features a large spinning wheel and a panel display of pictures and quotes from students, faculty, and alumni who have found their “pathway” to global health through a range of fields, such as psychology, creative writing, biology, engineering, business administration, sociology, nursing, and global development studies.
The global health activity tent is one of numerous events hosted by the Seattle Center to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World’s Fair, held in Seattle. The tent is located between the Seattle Center House and the EMP museum in the Next Fifty Plaza. The plaza also hosts fun rides for kids, construction of a Habitat for Humanity House, and a rotating themed exhibit.
