Lauren Davis, 2005 graduate of Issaquah High School, has been named project director for University of Washington’s Husky Help & Hope Program.
The program is made possible by a $300,000 grant awarded to University of Washington and Forefront to modernize approaches to suicide prevention at the Seattle Campus.
Davis serves on several King County boards aimed at preventing suicide and improving mental health. She has worked for suicide prevention since a childhood friend took his own life in high school. She previously worked as an international development consultant for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and was a Fulbright scholar in Ghana.
