Celebrate September with two things that Seattle does best: sailing and biomedical research!
 
Ro Yoon will discuss the science of HIV and the work of The Fred Hutchinson Seattle Vaccine Trials Unit (VTU).
 
Ro joined the VTU in 2010. She is an activist that engages with diverse communities throughout Seattle to ensure that HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention research are relevant and inclusive to all. In addition to educational sessions with volunteers and being a liaison for VTU Community Advisory Board, Yoon coordinates community events and training that address health and wellness issues that intersect with HIV and AIDS.
 
Kat Wolcott: “Sailing for the 99%”
 
Have you looked around at the beautiful waters around Seattle and always thought that sailing was just for the 1%? Think again! Learn about the history of sailing, the (lack) of fiscal responsibility involved, and the sorts of shenanigans you can get into — especially if you’re dealing with boats for the 99%.
 
Kat is the director of business operations for a local aerospace company. When not keeping the lights on, her hobbies include adopting sad boats and attempting to rehabilitate them, as well as foraging for mushrooms in the wilderness.
