Sustaining Health

Global sustainability is intricately tied to the health of the people and animals who live upon the planet. UC Davis is a leader in human and animal health, from ensuring the delivery of life-saving nutrition to children and mothers in developing countries, to finding ways to stop global pandemics and treating animals affected by environmental catastrophes. The university’s effectiveness is grounded in interdisciplinary research and its collaborations are often international in scope.
