UC San Diego’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences held its 8th graduation ceremony on Saturday at the Price Center.  Hundreds of family members and friends of the 59 graduates gathered for the commencement ceremony and celebration afterwards.  Before conferring the degrees, Chancellor Khosla commended the graduates for choosing a noble profession and dedicating their lives to help people, and he expressed how proud he is their hard work and achievements.  Established in 2000, The Skaggs School is the only public school of pharmacy in Southern California.

Chancellor Khosla was among the speakers at the Latina Latino & Indigenous Peoples Unity Coalition networking breakfast in the South Bay.  He talked about UC San Diego’s commitment to the community and our efforts to enhance our presence south of Interstate 8.  Paul Viviano, CEO of the UC San Diego Health System, also attended the event and gave an update on the expansion and improvements of our Medical Centers, and the new Health + Education + Research = Empowerment (HERE) initiative that was launched last fall to benefit communities in the South Bay and Southeastern San Diego.  UC San Diego and our Health System sponsored the breakfast.

Improving the Health and Well-Being of San Diegans

To learn more about the San Ysidro Health Center and UC San Diego’s history with the facility, Chancellor Khosla visited the organization yesterday, along with CEO of the UC San Diego Health System Paul Viviano.  During their visit, they toured the facility and met with several members of the center’s leadership team, and learned more about our School of Medicine’s role in founding the organization. The San Ysidro Health Center began as a voluntary program in 1968 through a partnership with UC San Diego.  Our collaborations have continued throughout the years and, today, the center provides low-cost, high-quality comprehensive healthcare to thousands of residents in the South Bay and Central/Southeastern San Diego.
