Our Needs:

Research and Education Building

Defined as the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through evidence-based choices by individuals and populations, Public Health requires the expertise of a varied and vast set of disciplines. UC Irvine Public Health focuses on discoveries and innovation by bringing together relevant expertise, constructing strategic intellectual bridges through our four pillars: research, reform, reflect, reveal. Research and Education BuildingTo support our faculty members, students, and community partners in their work, our development priority is to construct a Public Health multiplex. A dedicated Public Health building will increase the depth and frequency of interactions among our stakeholders, and help to translate our research into valuable tools, strategies and policies. Please contact Rebecca Rych to learn about a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to help name a Public Health multiplex building and leave a lasting legacy, and impact on Public Health.

Feature Story

December 11, 2015

Feature Story Public Health faculty member and project scientist, Dr. Mojgan Sami, is on her way to Paris as a member of an official civil society delegation. She was invited by the International Environment Forum, to advocate for enhanced accountability, equity and justice in climate change policy at COP21 (November 30 - December 11, 2015). The UCI Sustainability Initiative, in the Office of Academic Affairs, and the Program in Public Health generously provided funding for Dr. Sami's participation in COP21. She has also been invited to post-Paris meetings on the role of ethics in climate change policy throughout Europe.


Dr. Sami is a lecturer in Public Health and currently a member of an evaluation team working on a CDC funded grant in Orange County called "The Orange County Partnerships to Improve Community Health" (OC PICH) which aims to reduce chronic disease in underserved communities through promotion of active transportation and in physical activity. She is also working with colleagues on an interdisciplinary team studying the health impacts of the current Indonesian forest fires. Dr. Sami came to UCI after a career in global health and development, having had appointments at the World Bank and the World Health Organization.

        For many of our students, it's a favorite professor or classmate. For others, especially those who couldn't otherwise afford an education, it was receiving a scholarship and becoming part of the Anteater family.


        For me personally, I draw much of my inspiration from proud alumni, proud Anteater parents and, friends like you.


        Simply put, you understand the power of giving back. Your gracious support touches the lives of our students each and every day. For that reason, I ask you to renew your tradition of generosity by making a gift to the UCI Program in Public Health Fund to help bolster the program's academic priorities and reputation for excellence.


        As you know, the UCI Program in Public Health exists to serve our students and the needs of the communities we touch. Thanks to your support, you have helped us pursue research that is timely, impactful and socially responsible. You've made it possible to bring a multidisciplinary approach to public health, while helping us become a hub for public health research, practice, and education initiatives. In partnership with our faculty and staff, our goal is for our students to graduate equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to take on today's emerging challenges to human health.


        You are critical to our future. With state support continuing to decline, private support has become increasingly important to ensure that we can unleash innovation and create new opportunities for our students.


        Gifts to the Program in Public Health Fund create a vital stream of revenue to advance our strategic initiatives, respond quickly to new research opportunities and remain competitive in national rankings. Will you join me in enriching the UCI experience for our faculty and students?


        Your help is crucial to advancing our mission and will benefit:

        • Scholarships to recruit and retain the best students
        • Student research materials, equipment, and technology resources
        • Special initiatives, including GHREAT, the Global Health Research Education and Translation, a program that promotes global health awareness and aims to develop a comprehensive global health research, education and training program.


        With you by our side, we look forward to building on the momentum that we have created and to the promise of the future.


        Thank you in advance for your dedication and generosity.
