Activities

The Health, Equity and Wellness (HEW) Committee was founded in the summer of 2020 and initiated their efforts in the 2020-2021 school year by conducting several climate surveys. These surveys assessed the current and past experiences of members of the UC Davis Biomedical Engineering community, including undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, and faculty. Based on survey results, the HEW Committee is planning events, workshops, and seminars to increase education, retention, and awareness.
