Giving to the Department

The UC Department of Family and Community Medicine is dependent on philanthropic support.

While we have been successful in obtaining federal grants to help support a fraction our educational and research endeavors, we are dependent on the philanthropic support of our stakeholders. We are turning to our alumni and friends to ask for your continued support. Your gift will enable us to continue to commit the time, energy and resources needed to advance innovative primary care in our community.
