Dear UCSF Community,

Throughout the past year, you have embodied what truly distinguishes UCSF—an unrelenting commitment to our public mission across care delivery, research, and education at a time when those we serve need it most.

You continue to raise the bar in the pursuit of excellence and innovation in the health sciences. And I am inspired by our leadership and contributions, grateful for what you have achieved even under the most challenging circumstances.
I hope you take a moment to review the past year in the images and words that capture the UCSF spirit. 

From my family to yours, and on behalf of my leadership team, I wish you a warm and happy holiday season.
