Dear Members of the UCSF Community,
We are extremely troubled by the growing humanitarian crisis on our nation’s southern border, where children are forcibly separated from their parents.

Remembering Holly Smith
Dear Members of the UCSF Community:
It is with sadness that we share the news that Lloyd “Holly” Smith, Jr., MD, professor and chairman emeritus of the UCSF Department of Medicine, passed away yesterday at home at the age of 94. Holly was a luminary in the fields of medical education and research, and his absence will be felt not only at UCSF but well beyond.
When Holly joined UCSF in 1964 as the chairman of the Department of Medicine, there were only fifty full-time members (it now numbers approximately 750). He led the department through a period of exceptional and unprecedented growth, recruiting and mentoring faculty in record numbers, many of whom went on to be outstanding leaders in their fields.

New Outpatient Health Care Options
I’m pleased to announce two new options for adult and pediatric care in the East Bay, for you and other UCSF Health patients. This is especially important at a time when more people are looking for convenient, outpatient locations to receive their health care.
