Professor Marc Schenker of UC Davis received an alumni award of merit in November from the Harvard School of Public Health, where, in 1980, he received a master’s of public health (epidemiology and occupational health).

Schenker, a physician, joined the UC Davis faculty in 1983. He is affiliated with the department of public health sciences (serving as chair in 1995-2007) and the School of Medicine. He focuses on migration and health, occupational and environmental health, pulmonary disease, and global health research and teaching.

He holds three directorships: Occupational and Environmental Health, since 1983; Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety, since 1990; and Migration and Health Research Center, since 2009. He has been co-director of the Center of Expertise on Migration and Health since 2009.

And, since last year, Schenker has held a position in University Outreach and International Programs, as associate vice provost for outreach and engagement, at the local, state and international levels.

Schenker was a pre-med student at UC Berkeley, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in 1969, then received his M.D. at UC San Francisco in 1973.

Nancy E. Lane is a professor of internal medicine and rheumatology and director of the Center for Musculoskeletal Health at UC Davis Health System. She was elected to the Institute of Medicine, one the nation’s highest honors in health and medicine.

Lane is an internationally recognized scientist in the fields of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Her translational research team has been instrumental in defining the role of hormones known as glucocorticoids in bone fragility, including their effects on cell stress and vulnerable cell populations such as osteocytes, and she is a pioneer in the genetics of and novel treatments for osteoarthritis. She and her research team have developed a compound that directs stem cells to grow new bone and could potentially revolutionize osteoporosis treatments.

She has received numerous awards, including the UC Davis Dean’s Award for Scientific Mentoring in 2008, the David Trentham Lectureship and Women in Medicine Lectureship by Harvard Medical School in 2013, and the Paula Stern Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research in 2013.

Lane has provided editorial leadership to several influential journals, including Arthritis and Rheumatism, and Journal of Rheumatology. She was elected to the Association of American Physicians in 2006 and as a Master of the American College of Physicians in 2012. She continues to have an active rheumatology practice and has been named among the “Best Doctors in America” annually since 2004.

Army 2nd Lt. Scott Lee graduated from Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Fort Benning, Columbus, Ga., and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.

During the 12 weeks of training, the officer candidate received “basic soldiering” instruction in leadership, professional ethics, soldier team development, combined arms tactics, weapons defense, combat water survival, squad drill, intelligence, field training exercises, day and night land navigation, confidence obstacle course, common core tasks, communications, staff and general military subjects and physical fitness tests which include three, four and five-mile runs, and foot marches between 5-12 miles carrying rucksacks.

The candidate is tested on leadership skills and team work abilities required of a commissioned officer.  Students learned to utilize acquired skills to function in “leader and follower” positions in squad and platoon sized elements, and evaluated in various leadership garrison positions while in a stressful and demanding field environment.

He is a 2005 graduate of Davis High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in 2012 from UC San Diego.

Lee is currently serving at Fort Benning in Columbus, Ga.

Professor emeritus Stefano Varese of the UC Davis department of native American studies recently addressed the annual congress of the Latin American Studies Association as the recipient of the 2013 LASA-Oxfam America Martin Diskin Memorial Lectureship award.

In his lecture, “Eulogy of Utopian Praxis: From Dystopian Reality to the Research of Hope,” Varese said: “I often have asked myself this question: Can we abandon dystopia? When did we start to neglect utopia and assume dystopia?

“When did we begin to take for granted that the world we live in is irremediably unchangeable, that it is a good world the way it is, with a few hundred thousand people living in imperial luxury and billions of human beings (and other beings) barely surviving or becoming extinct?”

Charlie Hale, professor of anthropology at the University of Texas, introduced his former colleague. Hale was an assistant professor at UCD from 1990 to 1995, during which time he and Varese were prominent, along with professor emeritus Carol Smith, in founding the university’s Hemispheric Institute on the Americas.

“What an extraordinary record of scholarly ‘acompañamiento,’ of ‘witness to sovereignty’ (to borrow the title of Stefano’s most recent book) these four decades have produced,” Hale said of Varese’s academic career.
