Population Health interventions are as unique as the individuals we serve. Engaging presentations and interactive break out groups will highlight the diversity in populations, and how interventions can be tailored to best meet the complex needs of residents in the Commonwealth. We invite healthcare professionals, administrators, school professionals, public health officials, public safety, policy makers, and all others to join together and address common challenges faced in our communities such as mental health, chronic illness and health equity in various stages of the lifespan from women/children, adolescence, aging population and employees.
- Identify and discuss current initiatives in Virginia focused on population health.
- Link attendees to resources according to populations they serve
- Engage in critical thinking to address complex and challenging population health concerns in the Commonwealth
- Collaborate and network with participants and organizations to share ideas for improving population health in Virginia

Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series
Tuesday, March 27, 2018
6 pm to 7:15 pm
Old Cabell Hall
Angela Davis, through her activism and scholarship over the last decades, has been deeply involved in our nation’s quest for social justice. Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice. She has authored 9 books and has lectured throughout the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and South America. She draws upon her own experiences in the early seventies as a person who spent eighteen months in jail and on trial, after being placed on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted List.”
The Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series is an initiative of UVA Engineering’s Office of Diversity and Engagement, led by Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion John Fitzgerald Gates. Gates is working with faculty, staff and students to redefine diversity as excellence expressing itself through the intersection of all people’s perspectives and lived experiences, rather than traditional definitions. This definition supports UVA Engineering’s mission to leverage the talents and best efforts of all in order to create and disseminate knowledge, prepare future engineering leaders, solve global challenges and make the world a better place.
“We will harness the strategic value of diversity and inclusion in UVA Engineering’s research and education programs,” Gates said, “and we will cultivate an environment in which everyone is optimally valued and supported.”
This year’s Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series is UVA Engineering’s second. Last year, the series welcomed Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space; Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, a sociology professor at Duke University and expert on racism and human rights in America; Thomas Page McBee, a well-known transgender author; Joy DeGruy, an internationally recognized researcher, educator, author and presenter who provides insight into various cultural and ethnic groups that form the basis of contemporary American society; Daniel Beaty, an award-winning performer from New York whose works highlight people’s ability to understand each other and their possibilities; and Claude Steele, author of Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do. Videos of last year’s presentations CAN BE VIEWED HERE.
For this year’s series, other events will be added throughout the year. Event details, including dates, times and registration information, will be available at HTTPS://ENGINEERING.VIRGINIA.EDU/EVENTS and on UVA Engineering’s Facebook page, WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/UVAENGINEERING.
