Chancellor Continues to Strengthen Community Connections

Chancellor Khosla receives a Spirit of Mexico Collections portrait.

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.

Jordanian Prince Visits UC San Diego

In his first-ever visit to San Diego, His Royal Highness (HRH) Prince Mired Raad Zeid Al-Hussein of Jordan spent time on the UC San Diego campus to learn about the range of our research, education and public service.  Over the course of two days, he met with several faculty members and campus leaders, including Chancellor Khosla.  His visit to campus included stops at the Moores Cancer Center and the Center of Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture and Archaeology (CISA3), and he attended a Global Health Initiative sponsored symposium.

HRH Prince Al-Hussein was officially welcomed to San Diego upon his arrival last week at a gala hosted by a Southern California non-profit humanitarian organization focused on the Middle East.  HRH has spent a large part of his post-military career supporting humanitarian and charitable causes.  At the gala, Mayor Bob Filner presented HRH with the key to the City of San Diego.
