Aggie Care Everywhere

Fundamentally reimagining how we care for our
community - to prevent crises whenever possible.

Delivering Aggie Care Everywhere: the connection to services you need, when you need them, right where you are.

The Health 34 initiative, led by the UC Davis Fire Department, leverages our trusted network of campus and community service providers who will deliver mobile non-emergency response including mental health navigation and minor medical care to every segment of the UC Davis campus. 

In addition to navigating the UC Davis community to needed services, Health 34 will actively work to reduce barriers to accessing care by meeting those who seek care where they are.

Partners to Build a Healthier, More Resilient Campus

Rooted in the concept of Mobile Integrated Health, the program delivers care and service navigation 24/7 directly to those in need. 

  • Health 34 Objectives
    • Intervene in advance of a crisis to foster wellness.
    • Deliver mental and minor health services outside (in addition to those offered in the traditional clinical setting).
    • Deliver both acute care and service navigation 24/7 to the campus community, right where they are.
       
Community Centered on Wellbeing

Health 34 aims to increase community trust, especially with underrepresented and historically marginalized communities.

Health 34 will provide community-based systems of care that meets people where they are, by:

  • Connecting with at-risk community members before crisis
  • Providing resource navigation and case follow-up
  • Triaging pre-crisis health issues to the appropriate level of care
  • Delivering acute care where appropriate directly where the person is
  • Delivering health and wellness support and education to the community

Turning Plans Into Actions

Health 34 is part of the university's reaffirmed commitment in 2020 to re-imagine public safety on a college campus.


Health 34 offers an alternative to traditional crisis response, that aligns with:

  • UC Davis’ Strategic Plan
  • Principles of Community
