New council promotes partnerships between UCSF and community

-to-day management of the partnerships program is spearheaded by San Francisco native Elba Sanchez, who was hired as director in April. Sanchez comes to UCSF with more than 10 years' experience in building academic and community partnerships. "From a partnerships perspective, this is an opportunity to work with the community to address their needs, particularly in health care when so many people are underinsured or uninsured," she said.

One of the main challenges facing the newly formed Council is looking at ways to improve coordination and communication about best practices among UCSF's many individual community-based programs, according to Sanchez.

"It is amazing how broadly and deeply engaged we are in Bay Area communities through our current education, research, clinical care and community development programs," Washington said. "We have an opportunity to build on that foundation and to continue to show that we value our relationship with the community."

Community representatives serving on the Council are Tavi Baker, Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco; Lynda Boyer-Chu, Gloria R. Davis Academy of the San Francisco Unified School District; Larry Del Carlo, Mission Housing Development Corporation; Gwen Henry, Parent and Family Resource Center and Florence Crittenton Services; Eli Horn, Visitation Valley Community Beacon Center; Sharon Johnson, Potrero Hill Neighborhood House; Dwayne Jones, Communities of Opportunity initiative of the San Francisco Mayor's Office; Eric Lewis, Mission High School; John Nickens, Progress Foundation; and Nora Rios Reddick, Horizons Unlimited of San Francisco.

UCSF representatives are Charles Alexander, School of Dentistry; Patricia Caldera-Munoz, Science and Health Education Partnership; Gerri Collins-Bride, School of Nursing; Christine Des Jarlais, Graduate Division; Kevin Grumbach, Family and Community Medicine, UCSF and SFGH; Dixie Horning, National Center of Excellence in Women's Health; Cind
