Events for University of Washington Student Veterans

On behalf of the Counseling Center, H.U.M.V. (Husky United Military Veterans) and the Career Center, in alliance with the UW Veterans Center, we would like to inform you of the upcoming career focused events for veterans -

For the moment, we're focused on marketing the winter events, which begin with a workshop presented by the Counseling Center titled: Fame, Fortune and Fun: What do you really want to do with your life?  (Tuesday, February 7, 2:00 - 3:30PM - Mary Gates Hall 224).

The 21st Annual Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Conference

Participants wanted for a Computer Research Project

Researchers from the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Washington are planning to do a study measuring how different computer input devices affect how people use computers.  We hope the results of this study will help us evaluate the ergonomic aptitude of current designs and potentially lead to the identification of additional design modifications to further promote effective ergonomics and health.

The duration of the study is:
    2 to 4 hours

You will be asked to use:

We will measure:

  Wrist posture with goniometers
   Muscle activity with electrogmyography
   Typing forces with a force platform
  Preference questionnaires
 Comfort questionnaires

All of these measurements are non-invasive and minimal risk.  If you do decide to participate, you will be compensated $20/hr for your time. This money will be paid in cash.

 Taking part in this study is voluntary. If you are interested in participating in the study or just want more information, please contact Erin Stamper, project coordinator, at 206-543-4727 or via the email address listed below.
