Westwood : UCLA Receives Gift

November 05, 1987

The UCLA School of Public Health has been awarded $260,000 by the Fred H. Bixby Foundation to support two doctoral students each year in studies focusing on population and family health.

The two students will assist Dr. Judith Blake, the Fred H. Bixby professor of population policy, in her research on topics such as the causes and consequences of low birth rates.

The gift is the third major endowment given by the Bixby Foundation to the School of Public Health. In 1974 it established the Fred H. Bixby Chair in Population Policy, and in 1977 it gave $100,000 to start the doctoral program in population and family health.
