Chancellor's Health Policy Lecture Series

The Chancellor’s Health Policy Lecture Series was initiated in 2006 to bring outstanding health policy leaders to UCSF to highlight the important role that health policy plays in the lives of UCSF faculty, fellows, residents and students.  The series reflects how all activities represented within the UCSF community (research, training, clinical service, community outreach) exist within a complicated health policy context. At the same time, researchers at UCSF can and do have an impact on health policy issues through informing health policy decision-makers.
