State Rep. Laurie Jinkins, D-Tacoma, demonstrated her genuine interest in South Sound higher education recently. Jinkins inspired graduate students in the University of Washington Tacoma’s Nursing and Healthcare Leadership Program to become positive patient care and health policy advocates.

Jinkins carefully explained how bills become law and the importance of public participation in the political process. It’s heartening to see a representative who truly demonstrates her values by actively participating in the educational process.
