The UHS-Tang Health Worker Program is now recruiting student volunteers for 2022-23. Please check out this Health Worker Recruitment video (Youtube) and Health Worker Recruitment flyer (PDF) and copy of our Oct-Dec Impact Summary for a glimpse into the Health Worker position. You can learn more about Health Worker role and benefits by reading this Health Worker Role & Responsibilities Google Doc! The application opens on March 1st, 2022.

We seek to assemble diverse teams of students who are dedicated to the HWP goals and activities. While we prioritize selection of students who plan to live in or are members of the communities they serve (residence halls, Bowles Hall, I-House, academic departments), we also welcome applicants who plan to live/study remotely.

Please apply to be a UHS Health Worker here. The deadline for the application is March 31st, 2022. Interviews will be held April 5th-9th. For questions or more information please email hwpcoordinator@gmail.com or call Karen Hughes at 510-643-9073.
