In his second annual address, Hawgood will discuss initiatives underway across the four priority areas – equity and inclusion, precision medicine, partnerships and continuous learning – and the goal to sustain a culture of innovation throughout all research, education, patient care and administrative activities. 

Hawgood will also talk about recent developments in creating UCSF Health, a new fully integrated health care system, highlight recent University milestones and recognize individuals for outstanding accomplishments.

Hawgood was appointed the 10th chancellor of UCSF, a $5 billion enterprise, in July 2014. A renowned clinician, researcher and teacher, he has served UCSF in various roles for the past 34 years, most recently as interim chancellor, dean of the UCSF School of Medicine and as vice chancellor for medical affairs. He currently holds the Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Distinguished Professor appointment.

To celebrate the contributions of faculty, staff, students and trainees and our common bond in advancing health worldwide, this year’s event will feature a #OneUCSF reception following the address near the Nobel Prize wall.

The first 150 people to line up outside Cole Hall will receive a complimentary #OneUCSF T-shirt as worn by the No. 1 fundraising UCSF team at this year’s AIDS Walk San Francisco. Supplies are limited.
