OurWeekly Los Angeles recently featured a profile of President Michael V. Drake, M.D. In the article, President Drake shares his accomplishments at UC so far, his vision for supporting racial equity at the university, how he’s working to boost access to UC for more Californians, and snapshots of his own history.
He also shared four characteristics that he especially admires: “Intellectual curiosity; integrity — telling the truth and working hard to make sure you are living your life right; commitment — that passion. Lean into it and do your very best; be empathetic — care about other people. Have an appreciation for others and their variety of experiences; and lastly, have fun— these are our lives and the only ones we get. Enjoy it. It shouldn’t be a drag.”
