Education: K – You
It’s back to school time, so we’re focusing this month’s 10th Anniversary celebration on all thingseducation. Whether it’s new tools for teachers, challenges facing schools and universities, or helping students prepare for college, UCTV’s education programming covers everything to do with learning — from K through You.

Education: K – You

The Challenge of the Slums

Over 1 billion people are living in slums worldwide, and more people are moving in each day, reaching 2 billion by 2030. Urban and slum health is a critical research need and opportunity in the coming decade, concerning those in public health, and also everyone interested in economic development and social justice.

In April 2010, the Center for Global Public Health at UC Berkeley gathered together experts to explore this complex issue from a multidisciplinary perspective, and they’ve shared these important conversations with UCTV’s audience.
