about the
The Bixby Center


The Bixby Center on Population and Reproductive Health was established in 2001 at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health as the result of a generous gift from the Fred H. Bixby Foundation. The Center has grown since then with the support of several additional Bixby Foundation gifts. The Center promotes and supports students and faculty engaged in research and internships in the areas of population, reproductive health, and family planning. The principal focus of the program is on reproductive health issues in developing countries, where population growth rates remain high and reproductive health services are poor or inaccessible. However, the Bixby Center also works on reproductive health-related issues in the United States. The Center is led by Dr. Anne Pebley.

Dr. Paula Tavrow is the Director of the Bixby Program on Population and Reproductive Health, a central activity of the Bixby Center. The Bixby Program sponsors a number of activities, such as a lecture series, research mentorships, international internships, graduate-level courses in advocacy skills and adolescent health, occasional conferences, a listerv and two graduate student groups. The Bixby Program also offers a Certificate in Population and Reproductive Health to graduate students in all departments in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health who complete the requirements (see the Bixby Certificate page for more information).

Note that the Bixby Program is not a degree granting program. Students interested in population and reproductive health should apply to one of the five departments in the Fielding School of Public Health. See http://ph.ucla.edu/prospective-students for more information on applying to the Fielding School of Public Health.
