Join us for a special evening to celebrate the extraordinary work of alumna Dr. Barbara Ferrer (Rachel Carson ‘78 - Community Studies) who leads the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. As UCSC prepares to launch a new Global and Community Health program aimed at addressing challenges of ill-health both globally and locally, Grant Hartzog, professor of Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology and Matt Sparke, professor of Politics will join our conversation to discuss Dr. Ferrer’s path from UC Santa Cruz to the Department of Public Health, the lessons learned over the last two years leading one of the largest counties in the country through a global pandemic, and the important role of global and community health in addressing the challenges of ill-health globally and locally.
