Hepatitis: UCSF and San Francisco at Ground Zero
UCSF faculty and staff in the schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and UCSF Medical Center are engaged in a range of efforts, sometimes joined by students, often with partners in San Francisco city and county government and in affected populations. They aim to educate individuals at risk for the disease about prevention and vaccination, to identify people who are infected and to ensure that those who need treatment receive it.
