January Student of the Month: Davis McWilliams

Hi, I’m Davis and I am a fourth-year Global Disease Biology student. The GDB curriculum has given me the tools and experience necessary to become successful in the fields of public health and health sciences. The wide range of course topics has exposed me to new ways of thinking while diving deeper into topics I already have had an interest in. Studying disease from a One Health perspective has allowed me to analyze and critically think about health issues from different angles. During my years in the GDB program, I have gained the confidence to pursue goals that I would not have had otherwise, such as being a contributing member to a research lab here on campus. Through my time at UC Davis in the GDB program, I feel prepared and excited to face the health challenges of our ever-changing world!
