About the Speakers

Allison Brashear, M.D., M.B.A., was appointed dean of the UC Davis School of Medicine in April 2019. She oversees one of the nation’s top research, academic and medical training institutions, with 761 full-time faculty and approximately 450 students. As an internationally known researcher in movement disorders, Brashear added her expertise to a school that is a national leader in research, with 220 percent growth in NIH funding since 2007. The school of medicine has 10 departments with research funding ranked in the national top 20, including three in the top 10, and ranked 18th nationally for Brashear’s field of neurosciences.

The school is equally a leader in academics and training, ranking ninth in primary care training in the latest U.S. News & World Report survey of America’s top medical schools, as well as 13th for its obstetrics and gynecology program and tied for 13th in family medicine training.

Stephen J. Cavanagh is the Dignity Health Dean's Chair for Nursing Leadership as well as dean and professor at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis. Cavanagh leads the School of Nursing and collaborates with the interprofessional Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group in the operation of five graduate degree programs as well as development of new programs.

With a passion for health care workforce development and maximizing the use of advanced practice nurses, his research explores the understanding of innovation within the almost unique regulatory framework in which nursing operates — and the need for it within nursing education due to projected nurse shortages — a growing elderly population and the rise of technology in health care. He has also generated more than $16 million in external federal, state and foundation funding to develop nursing practice arrangements, support diversity in health care and increase the nursing workforce.
