Bentley Artison (he/him/his) is in his senior year. He is following a pathway towards a major in Health Studies and a minor in Science, Technology and Society (STS). Being a Seattle native, he plans on attacking a career in public health that will shed more light on the health disparities being faced between communities here in King County. Besides his involvement with the CROW, he can be found enjoying time with his family, making music, traveling, and working out, and oh yeah movies… lots of movies. As this is his first year working with the CROW, he is glad to see this journal gain its altitude and take flight!
Daniel Curtin (he/him/his) is a third-year undergraduate student majoring in both Health Studies and Biology, with a minor in Biochemistry (and a self-described lab rat).

There, she lives with her partner, his son, and their furry and scaled family members. Together they enjoy connecting with the natural world and dismantling the corporate dominating narrative. Though English is her only well-known language, she enjoys breaking and expanding its confines and rules, both academically and amateurly. Spring ‘22 was her first quarter as a board member.
