To my UC Davis Health System colleagues:

Now more than ever we want to invest in ourselves, in clinical excellence, in high-impact research and research training, and innovative health-science education. Of course, these lofty goals come at a time when the University of California is being asked to change how we do business. I see us managing all of these tensions together so that we continue to make a big difference in our communities. This unified approach supports Strategy 6.3 of the health system’s Strategic Plan: Transparent, Strategic Decision-Making.

The rewards and resources are constantly changing. For a good read on managing change in both your work and life, I recommend “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Spencer Johnson, M.D.

I enjoy our UC Davis family and trust us to work together.
