Aug. 5 — School of Nursing faculty, staff represent UC Davis at national conference
Faculty, staff and students from the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis made up a significant portion of the UC Davis contingent at the OCA National Convention in Sacramento Aug. 3-6. Originally named the Organization of Chinese Americans, in an effort to be more inclusive, the group changed its name three years ago to OCA — Asian Pacific American Advocates. It is a national organization of community advocates dedicated to improving the social, political and economic well-being of Asian-Pacific Americans. Maricel Lumaquin, a data analyst at the School of Nursing, led efforts to establish the table at the conference’s awards gala. Maricel was honored by the School of Nursing previously this year with a diversity and inclusion award for her efforts to promote and support Asian-Pacific students and staff at UC Davis. She was joined by faculty Gerald Kayingo, the director for the physician assistant program, and Brett Luu, a pharmacist and assistant clinical professor. Patrick Hiep Ma, a first-year physician assistant student, served as a panelist for the presentation, “Destigmatizing Mental Health.” Patrick represented the Stop Stigma Sacramento Speakers Bureau.
