Don't miss this special showing of Life Before the Lifeboat, a documentary that is the brainchild of pioneering UCSF AIDS physician Paul Volberding, now director of UCSF's AIDS Research Institute. The documentary features Volberding in intimate conversations with some of San Francisco's courageous leaders from the earliest days of the AIDS epidemic, when UCSF-affiliated San Francisco General Hospital was "ground zero." The 30-minute film highlights how gay activists, along with health care professionals at SFGH, UCSF, and other medical centers, came together to respond in the early years of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco.
Join this annual celebration of UCSF's LGBT community and those who have provided leadership within it! Each year, the Chancellor presents the GLBT Leadership Awards to a student, a staff member, and a faculty member, who then speak about their perspectives and experiences. It's a moving and inspiring event! This year's honorees: Dan Karasic, MD (faculty), Juno Obedin-Maliver (student/resident/postdoc), and Shane Snowdon (staff).
