Update from the Dean – May 2019

Dear UCSF School of Pharmacy Family and Friends:

At the UCSF School of Pharmacy we don’t just embrace change, we create it. We have a rich history as drivers of change in our profession, in science, and in education. That passion for change, coupled with a scientific mindset, is clearly evident today in the School, as you’ll read in this Update.

I have much to share, so I’ll get right to it.

With warm regards,

QBI Asst.Dir. Marketing/Events

I evangelize the work at the Quantitative Biosciences Institute through communications, experiential marketing, and events including advertising campaigns, flash-talks, seminars, and symposia. As a content creator myself, I also supervise the development of media releases such as podcasts, videos, photos, graphics and branding collateral for print, and the QBI website and social media.
