    Healing in Challenging Times

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

    Our nation is facing very challenging times. Yet again, we struggle to come to terms with video and news of the shooting deaths of two more black men at the hands of police. And then we are confronted with the shocking images of one or more snipers taking aim at police officers resulting in deaths and injury, including peaceful protestors. We extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the victims as well as support to the communities at-large.
