With only a year at UC Davis Health System, Kenneth W. Kizer has made great strides at the Institute of Population Health Improvement. Kizer, the Institute’s Director, announced this week a $30 million partnership with the California Department of Public Health to run the California Cancer Registry, one of the world’s leading resources for population-based data on cancer.

In May, the California Health and Human Services Agency announced a $20 million plan to partner with the Institute at UC Davis to implement the Health Information Exchange (HIE) programs. The HIE will help strengthen health-care services in California.

The Cancer Registry and Health Information Exchange program provide important data for research that will advance the health of everyone throughout the State.
