The Alumni Association of UCSF has named 12 winners of the inaugural UCSF Campaign Alumni Awards to highlight the remarkable work of some of UCSF’s most illustrious alumni. Winners of the awards will be recognized during UCSF’s Alumni Weekend, June 1-2.
In 1967, during the Summer of Love, the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic was launched by volunteer physicians from UCSF. They provided non-judgmental health care to the hippies flocking to San Francisco, and would help revolutionize addiction treatment.
This year, with the culmination of the yearlong 150th Anniversary celebration, it was all the more reason for 2,000-some UCSF alumni and friends from 34 states and six countries to return to their alma mater for their annual reunion.
