Student Testimonial

Global Disease Biology has allowed me to foster a holistic and comprehensive view of health and disease that I truly feel is one of the most vital perspectives in this ever-changing world and has prepared me for success in my future endeavors. From general education to specialized upper division courses and restricted electives the skills and knowledge I have gained will surely serve me well. I could not be more appreciative of the GDB community including my professors, advisors, and (of course) my peers who have all been incredible teachers, mentors, and friends along this journey.

Global Disease Biology has given me the opportunity to explore different healthcare paths and look at the world around me with a holistic view. In addition,  I am passionate about community health and the intersections science and technology and my major and minor combined have really allowed me to explore that interest. If you are new to GDB, like I was coming into Davis, my tip is definitely reach out to the GDB team. You will find that everyone is very nice and informative and their passion for the major was what made Global Disease Biology an easy choice for me!
