MOVE IT UP Project featured on
UC Davis Health News

Vaccines have been widely available for about a year. But, MOVE IT UP leaders are concerned that some members of racial and ethnic groups still lag behind other groups on immunizations. 

In fact, that’s why UC Davis Health, the UC Davis School of Medicinestudent-run clinics and Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing have all taken a leading role across the Sacramento region to break down barriers and make the vaccines more accessible to the underserved. In addition, a major effort last year started by the UC Davis Health ambulatory division has provided hundreds of thousands of doses to patients and community members in standalone and pop-up clinics.

Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit the 13 UC Davis School of Medicine-affiliated student-run clinics. This year, organizers hope to raise $50,000. The crucial funding would go toward maintaining services and purchasing supplies and equipment to provide quality care to vulnerable local patient populations.

Welcoming Our Migrant Farmworkers

Help Esmeralda Garza raise funds to welcome our migrant farmworkers arriving at Yolo County's 3 migrant centers. Year after year, families from Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and southern California travel to Yolo County to harvest our crops through October. Last year we raised over $8000 to welcome our farmworkers in the Davis and Madison migrant centers with $50 cash and a box of essential household items to help them settle in. Help show them how much we appreciate their hard work and their commitment to come back year after year!
