Serious Problems With UC Regents Health Committee, more

See Pro Publica:
"University of California Regent Violated Ethics Rules, Review Finds
A secret 2015 report found that a doctor on the UC board of regents tried to negotiate a deal between his eye clinics and UCLA, and engaged in discussions in which he had a financial interest. He denied wrongdoing but resigned as chair of the regents’ health committee."

ProPublica,


Update, May. 3, 2016:
"After this story ran, the University of California responded to our Public Records Act request, filed in January, and released the investigative report and exhibits related to Regent William De La Peña. They were redacted by the university and can be found here".
