University Friends Circle (UFC) meets from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 5 at the Branding Iron Restaurant, 640 W. 16th St., Merced.

Coccidioidomycosis, or valley fever, is a fungal disease endemic to the soils of the Southwest. It is widespread in California, with about 30 percent of all cases nationwide occurring in the Central Valley.

Admission is $20 for members and $25 for guests. For information on joining the UFC or to RSVP, email ufc@ucmerced.edu. Reservation deadline is noon Thursday, March 31.

UFC encourages people from UC Merced and surrounding communities to join the organization.
