State of Minds: Fall Edition

We’re kicking off the 2010 school year with our 20th installment of UCTV’s signature magazine program, State of Minds. This edition shows us how UC Davis School of Medicine is enticing newly minted MDs to practice in rural communities; shares new research into the “Science of Happiness” at UC Berkeley; explores the Special Collections projects at UCLA; and visits with California science teachers who spent the summer running experiments at UC’s three national labs.
