UCSF Community & Government Relations

UCSF is dedicated to facilitating open and ongoing engagement with the community and elected officials and supporting UCSF’s commitment to the communities we call home. 

Committed to the Community

We invest in and support our community by sponsoring events, making strategic public benefit investments, providing free health screenings, and promoting activities to encourage health and wellness. In 2018:

  • We provided over 15 health and community events in neighborhoods near our active projects.
  • We facilitated over 1,000 free screenings for skin cancer, oral health, and blood pressure.
  • We committed over $10.5 million in the Dogpatch neighborhood for improvements to parks, open space and pedestrian safety.

Community & Government Relations Projects

UCSF is engaged in a variety of ongoing projects designed to enhance the campus and medical center, and better serve both patients and the greater community. When we embark on any project, planning always includes engagement with the local community.
