Erik Fernandez y Garcia, M.D., M.P.H.
Health care innovator

One in five mothers suffers from maternal depression, which can affect
childrens health as well. So pediatrician Erik Fernandez y Garcia created
a novel intervention that provides motivation to depressed mothers
screened at well-child visits. The technique leads more women to
seek support and care for their depression and helps to nurture their
youngsters, too.

This is health through innovation. health.ucdavis.edu

How long have you been a chef ?
I graduated culinary school in 2006, which began my
professional career, but I had jobs in the food industry since
I was 14. My first job was as a candy maker for Morgans of
California, where I made hundreds of pounds of caramel corn
daily; after that I worked for a family barbecue restaurant in
San Diego. After culinary school, I launched my career into
fine dining working with some of the best chefs in Sacramento.
I spent several years at Scotts Seafood on the River, then
onto Firehouse in Old Sac, and several other restaurants and
hotels along the way. In 2011, at the age of 24, I became an
executive chef of Arden Hills Resort Club and Spa. I was then Name: Rina Younan

increasingly complex nature of regulations for pawn shops in

Jerry Lawson told the Roseville Press Tribune in an
