Chancellor Gene Block and UCLA staff members gathered today for 10 minutes of exercise to honor Dr. Antronette (Toni) Yancey, a professor at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health and advocate for health equity and proponent of "Instant Recess." She died April 23 following a battle with lung cancer. The 1 p.m. tribute at UCLA's CHS Plaza coincided with "Instant Recess" events by public health professionals and supporters across the United States.
