I attended the Brookings Institute’s Cost of Obesity yesterday and discussed how "nutrition and public health are major challenges of our age, and interdisciplinary partnerships like that between our World Food Center and the Brookings Institute are essential to achieving real progress".

+UC Davis surgeons are testing an innovative method of limiting cognitive decline in patients with Parkinson’s disease. The treatment — deep brain stimulation, or DBS — involves delivering low levels of electrical stimulation to a part of the brain that controls the abilities to think, plan and remember. #parkinsons #deepbrainstimulation

This week, local Mexicans revisited their heritage through Cinco de Mayo activities. Embracing cultural identity may be one way to preserve what researchers call the “Latino Paradox.” Latinos currently outlive their white neighbors, despite a higher risk for health issues.

California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development has awarded more than $600,000 in grants to UC Davis’ Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Residency Training programs to boost primary health-care workforce training in California. This is the first time the departments have received funding from what is known as the Song-Brown Program. #residency #primarycare #pediatrics #internalmedicine #meded

This is great. Hopefully it is a barometer for future healthcare trends that are better funded by individual states.
