Summer in The City 🌁: It would hardly be a summer day in San Francisco without @karlthefog rolling off the ocean and enveloping the Parnassus campus and Mount Sutro.

.
A year ago, Dilan was a gifted sixth grader and the star catcher on his Little League team — with a seemingly minor nut allergy. While on a family vacation in Croatia, he collapsed after an apparent allergic reaction. He had stopped breathing within minutes.
.
At a nearby hospital, an MRI revealed that oxygen deprivation had resulted in severe brain damage. Dilan was transported straight from Croatia to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, where he spent two months in daily physical, speech, and occupational therapy.
.
That therapy included regular sessions in the exoskeleton, a wearable robot equipped with computerized sensors and motors. The technology helps patients relearn how to coordinate their movements, which is important for Dilan, who now struggles to control his body.
.
Back home in Fremont, Dilan has emerged with a new ambition: to become a physical therapist. “It’s possible I might not be a professional baseball player,” he jokes.

.
The technology at the @ucsfmakerslab lets us create 3D printouts from actual patient scans for educational purposes and for clinical planning, for a fraction of the cost of traditional medical models. The foot and pelvic bone in the video cost less than $20 to print!

Without their courageous fight, resilience, and perseverance, many freedoms that we enjoy today would never have been obtained. The fact that I am Chair of UCSF Surgery is proof of the advances made, in part because of the courage of the people at that watershed moment in history.” -Julie Sosa, UCSF Department of Surgery Chair . ✨Follow @UCSF✨ as we celebrate LGBT Pride Month by highlighting members of the UCSF community who represent the LGBTQIA spectrum. .

“You need to do what allows you to have all of your happiness,” says UCSF alum @doctor.aamodt . “It’s not going to be your profession alone. It’s going to be all the other things around you. Your family, your friends, your hobbies. So do what enables you to be happy.”
.
"Except maybe it’s not happiness that’s the goal, but instead consciousness [and] fulfillment,” he adds, reflecting on the hard work, sacrifices, and highs and lows of founding his orthodontics company, @uniformteeth “Fulfillment sometimes hurts...but that shows me that I'm on the edge of making a big change that could help a lot of people. And sometimes that doesn't feel like happiness the whole way through.”

🎓This June, we're celebrating
#UCSFAlumniMonth by shining a spotlight on our remarkable alumni.
