THE DOWNLOAD: Field Trip, Food, Football

Professor takes learning on the road

Graduate students in medicine and nursing, local community members, and faculty and staff from the UC Davis School of Medicine, the UC Davis Master of Public Health Program and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis took a road trip down Highway 99 to learn about the history and people of California’s Central Valley.

Nearly 50 people boarded a bus, which served as a classroom on wheels, for the overnight tour. Stops in Stockton, Modesto, Merced, Chowchilla, Bakersfield, McFarland and Delano exposed participants to the beauty, histories, strengths, and challenges of this diverse region and its people. Learn more about the trip in the above video or on the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing website.
