University of California President Janet Napolitano will join speakers from up and down the UC system when UC Davis hosts the fourth annual UC Global Health Day on April 26.

Planned topics include: global health diplomacy, maternal and child health, animal health, emerging infectious diseases, economics and migrant health.

“When we talk about global health, we are speaking about the health of people not only in developing countries, but also throughout the United States,” Napolitano said in a news release.

“With five medical centers, world-class health research initiatives and top-ranked educational programs, the University of California is making an enormous impact on the health of populations across the world, including people in need right here in California.”

The event will feature 16 breakout sessions and 60 poster presentations. Faculty and students from all 10 campuses are expected to take part.

Among the planned talks:

* UCD professors Andrew Hargadon, of the Graduate School of Management, and Jonna Mazet, director of the vet school’s One Health Institute, will present a talk on “How Breakthroughs Happen.”

* Jonathan Samet, director of the Institute of Global Health at the University of Southern California, will speak about “Moving beyond Global Tobacco Control to Global Noncommunicable Disease Control.”

The event will be hosted at UCD by the School of Medicine and School of Veterinary Medicine. The Irvine, Berkeley and Riverside campuses have previously hosted the event.

“Global health is an increasingly popular field of study at UC Davis and we are thrilled to be hosting UC Global Health Day this year,” said UCD Chancellor Linda Katehi, who will give welcoming remarks at the event. “Because of our particular strengths in agriculture, medicine, veterinary medicine and engineering, UC Davis is uniquely positioned to address the biggest challenges of health worldwide.”

Established in 2009, the UC Global Health Institute is made up of three multi-campus centers of expertise: migration and health, one health (which takes a multidisciplinary approach to the bettering human, animal and environmental health), and women’s health and empowerment.

The cost to attend the event is $50 for general admission, $25 for students. Registration is open until Tuesday, April 22. For more information, see www.ucghi.universityofcalifornia.edu/index.aspx.
