The STEAM Department hosts STEAM Cafés once a month – a time for students to meet with female leaders in STEM fields and learn about their research or work. STEAM Cafés are a wonderful opportunity to open our students' minds to new careers and introduce students to STEM role models. Also, STEAM Cafés are a great way to invite community members into our building without impacting class schedules or curriculum
This week's STEAM Cafe welcomes Dr. Hillary Liss, University of Washington Harborview Medical Center internist and UW clinical assistant professor of medicine.
Dr. Liss provides comprehensive primary care to patients in the Adult Medicine Clinic and the Madison Clinic at Harborview Medical Center. She also provides trainings, preceptorships and clinical consultations related to HIV and STDs to healthcare providers throughout Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, and Oregon in her role as the medical program director of the Northwest AIDS Education and Training Center and as a trainer for the Seattle STD Prevention Training Center.
Dr. Liss earned her bachelor's degree from Princeton University and her M.D. from University of Maryland. She first came to the University of Washington for her medical residency in 1997, and after completing her residency, she served as the ambulatory care chief resident at Harborview Medical Center.
Dr. Liss spent two years volunteering in Nepal to help establish a new medical school before returning to Harborview Medical Center.
