April 25, 2018 is UCI's second annual Giving Day. Giving Day, a 24-hour online giving campaign, is a chance for Anteaters everywhere to come together and show their pride for an extraordinary day of giving back. It is not about the size of the gift on Giving Day. No matter how small, your gift combines with others to make a difference and provide essential funding for UCI students, faculty and researchers. Show your support and give directly to UCI Program in Public Health on Giving Day.

Written comments will complement the many materials submitted to CEPH by the UCI Program in Public Health, including a self-study document.
If you have questions about the process, please contact Dr. Oladele Ogunseitan, Chair, Department of Population Health and Disease Prevention at UC Irvine, by email Oladele.Ogunseitan@uci.edu, or by phone at 949-824-0611.
There is no better time in history to engage with public health at UC Irvine, home to innovative and resourceful public health research, practice, and education initiatives. Click here to learn more about us.
The mission of the public health program at the University of California, Irvine is to create, integrate, and translate population-based knowledge into preventive strategies for reducing the societal burden of human disease and disability through excellence in research, education, and public service.

We currently offer a B.S. in Public Health Sciences and a B.A. in Public Health Policy; a Master of Public Health (MPH) in four emphases: Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Sociocultural Diversity and Health, and Biostatistics; and a Ph.D in Public Health with concentrations in Global Health and Disease Prevention. We also offer a minor in Public Health.

Please join us in congratulating Justin Wilford, candidate for Ph.D. in Public Health, for winning the prestigious 2018 Chancellor’s Club Fund for Excellence Fellowship.
The fellowship recognizes UC Irvine's most academically superior doctoral students who exhibit outstanding promise as scholars, researchers, and public leaders. Fellows are selected on the basis of demonstrated academic excellence, accomplishments, and leadership qualities consistent with the mission of the Chancellor's Club to represent, develop, and support future leaders.
Justin's research interest is in translating laboratory, clinical, and epidemiological findings in preventive and behavioral medicine into community-based interventions to lower health risks throughout the trajectory of childhood cancer survivorship. He works with faculty mentor Professor Lari Wenzel to combine social psychological findings in social support, social learning, and social modelling with pre-clinical and clinical research toward supportive oncology and disease prevention.
Racial discrimination can have serious health consequences. A new study led by the University of California, Irvine has found that more self-reported incidents among black and Latino adults corresponded to higher blood pressure levels, putting these populations at greater risk for cardiovascular disease.
We aim to contextualize the growing body of research on the sequelae of military service in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. We employ a social–ecological (SE) framework for the taxonomy of military health research and classify risk as arising from the individual, family, community, and the institutional levels. We intend for this review to inform enhanced health promotion efforts in military communities.
“For students, knowing there is somewhere to get your food and feel dignified doing that, it is an empowering thing,” said Ernest Devin Rankin, 19, a sophomore in public health policy and educational science, who works at the pantry part time. “We have frozen meat, eggs, bread, milk, cereal — all that goes quickly. Fruit, granola bars, that stuff goes out in a second, we can’t stock it fast enough.”
Jennifer B. Kane, UCI assistant professor of sociology, has been named a 2018 Kavli Fellow by the National Academy of Sciences, in recognition of her exceptional research as an early career scientist. She specializes in applying quantitative methods in the analysis of social inequality, population health, family, fertility and the inter-generational transmission of health and well-being. She has received more than $1.4 million from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to study the causes of poor infant health. Her findings have been published in Social Forces; Demography; Social Sciences & Medicine; Journal of Health and Social Behavior; and Journal of Marriage and Family, among others. As a new fellow, Kane was invited to participate in the 29th Annual Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium, held at the Beckman Center in Irvine in February. The event brings together outstanding young scientists from academia, industry and government to discuss the latest advances and opportunities in a broad range of scientific disciplies. Kane joined the School of Social Sciences in 2015 following a postdoctoral fellowship with the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The poster was entitled Immersing Online Students through Role Plays, a Case Study, and Group Work: Reconceptualizing an Environmental Quality and Health Course and depicted an innovative collaboration between the two presenters. The fully online course — Public Health 60: Environmental Health and Quality — has been offered online three times: twice in summer and once in Winter 2018. The course is unique in its design in that it features a three-pronged design to engage students: a case study; student role-playing; and weekly mandatory online synchronous team meetings.
The Program in Public Health has adopted the best practices for supporting students facing an immigration crisis that have been recommended by the Committee for Equity and Inclusion for Undocumented Students (CEIUS). Several of these best practices include preventive strategies to support equity and inclusion, which are supplemented by recommendations for supporting students experiencing an immigration crisis. More information about best practices for UCI faculty, staff, and teaching assistants can be found below.
Our mission is to create, integrate, and translate population-based knowledge into preventive strategies for reducing the societal burden of human disease and disability through excellence in research, education and public service. We value your awareness and support. Your gift is appreciated and helps us achieve our mission. LEARN MORE DONATE NOW
