School leaders, staff, students step out in support of AIDS Walk San Francisco

The entire UCSF enterprise—including the School of Pharmacy—is gearing up for AIDS Walk San Francisco. This year’s walk will take place on Sunday, July 20 in Golden Gate Park.

Michael Nordberg, associate dean of finance and administration, is the leader of the 2014 School of Pharmacy Team. Nordberg encourages everyone in the School to join in—administrators, leaders, faculty, staff, and students.

“Join our team, and get the word out,” said Nordberg. “Sign up to walk and set your fundraising goal. We’ll have a blast in Golden Gate Park, while raising money for local organizations that deliver much-needed services to people living with HIV/AIDS.”
