UCSF Black Women's Health
The Black Women’s Health & Livelihood Initiative envisions a world where Black women are valued and nurtured in the same way that Black women care for others. We prioritize and amplify the voice and power of Black women, at UCSF and beyond, to achieve their optimal health and well-being.
This Initiative places UCSF in a national movement to address the current realities of health care inequities for Black women. Read more about the initiative
EMBRACE: Group Prenatal Care for Black Families. A clinical program developed to give Black mothers and Black pregnant people an opportunity to receive prenatal care from an intentional angle of racial consciousness.
Our first Bay Area Black Women’s Leadership Retreat with over 45 of the Bay Area’s and UCSF’s most prominent and leading Black women in the areas of clinical and public health, community, advocacy, education, and leadership.
We at the UCSF Black Women’s Health & Livelihood Initiative are deeply saddened, hurt, and angered as we have witnessed the deaths of Black people at the hands of the police. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Tony McDade have now been added to the list of names of those we know whose lives have been cut short by police violence.
