OLYMPIA—Seattle-area health advocate Winona Hollins-Hauge will represent the area on the Washington State Commission on African Affairs.
Hollins-Hauge, who was appointed by Gov. Chris Gregoire, will serve until November 2007 and will chair the commission's subcommittee on health.
Hollins-Hauge holds a master's degree in social work and is a licensed clinical social worker who recently served as community outreach manager for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. She is Washington's representative to the Intercultural Cancer Council, a national organization that champions the needs of people with cancer in low-income and ethnic communities.
In 2005, she received a Lena Hubbard Guild/Children's Hospital award for community service to diverse populations.
"As the former social work program manager for the Odessa Brown Children's Clinic, I feel well equipped to help the commission address the complex social, cultural and health issues challenging African American families," Hollins-Hauge said.
The Commission on African American Affairs has nine seats. Anyone interested in learning more or applying for a commission seat should call Executive Director Rosalund Jenkins, 360-725-5663, or visit the  www.governor.wa.gov /actions/appointments/boards/.
