Public health is all around us. From the ongoing battle against infectious diseases like COVID-19 to the persisting threats of climate change, natural disasters and global humanitarian crisis, public health is embedded in all matters concerning human health and safety. And as the world comes to learn more and more each day, securing a safer, more equitable and sustainable future for all begins with public health.
Our students, faculty, researchers and alumni have dedicated their careers to finding solutions to today’s most pressing public health issues. At UCI Public Health, we tackle these challenges with our mission top of mind: to reduce the global burden of disease through evidence-based, equity-driven approaches to research, education and public service. At the heart of this mission is our commitment to training a pipeline of future leaders in health who will become a workforce that reflects our diverse society.
In the words of future public health leader, current undergraduate student, and 2021 Giving Day scholarship recipient Karina Brianna Rosalez,
“I instantly gravitated toward everything that public health stood for: helping those less fortunate and improving the health and well-being of communities. I switched majors to public health my sophomore year and haven’t looked back.”

Giving Day is your chance to support the public health community as they carry out this life-saving work and give back to future generations of public health professionals.
Thanks to the leadership of our Public Health Alumni Chapter Board, all gifts made to the UCI Program in Public Health on Giving Day will support undergraduate student scholarships.
We hope you will join us in our work toward a brilliant future and consider making a gift to the Program in Public Health today. Every gift counts, no matter the amount.
