Marjorie McGee, research associate in the PSU’s Center for Student Success in the Graduate School of Education, has been appointed to the Northwest Health Foundation (NWHF) governing board of directors. The NWF is a Portland-based nonprofit that convenes funding and support services for large and small organizations working in community health issues.
McGee is an essential component in the center’s work to provide quality program evaluation, consultation, professional development, and research services to PreK–12 schools, districts, and nonprofit organizations. Her strong background in research on peer victimization and psychosocial distress among youth with disabilities will be an important asset to NWF.
“This is a great time to be a part of Northwest Health Foundation,” said McGee. “The foundation made the key decision to build relationships with organizations and communities representing people with disabilities, and I can’t wait to be a part of that journey.”
