Pop Star for a Day: Make-A-Wish at UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center

It was a party fit for a pop star at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center when cancer patient Makayla Abbe of Pine Grove (Amador County) arrived in a purple Mercedes limo and headed down the red carpet to debut her new music video, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and UC Davis Children’s Hospital. The 14-year-old signed autographs and took questions from throngs of adoring fans, with paparazzi in tow, all to fulfill her wish of being a “pop star for a day.”

A look at Latitude

By the time summer is out, UC Davis will have a new dining facility. Latitude, located on Bioletti Way south of Hutchison Drive, is scheduled to open this fall with both a dining commons and a retail store with meals to go. The eatery will feature an international flair, specializing in international dishes not available elsewhere on campus.

Go on a tour of the building, courtesy of the contractor hard at work creating it, in the above video.
