UCSF Black Health Initiative
The UCSF Black Health Initiative (BHI) was launched in the Fall of 2020 with a PCORI-funded grant to increase engagement with Black/AA community to better address COVID-19 and related disparities.

Welcome to BHI

The Black Health Initiative exists to help UCSF be a better partner with the Black Community. We center community voices to partner in reducing health disparities and uplift Black health, wellness, and prosperity. We facilitate:

  • Restorative Engagements with the Black community
  • Build on more non-transactional partnerships
  • Amplifying/Partnering with community folks already doing great work
  • Centering Black voices not traditionally heard at UCSF – impact work of UCSF through paid consultations and more
  • Provide Workforce development opportunity – develop community consulting skills to health institutions like UCSF; link to workforce opportunities and development at UCSF that could benefit the Black community 
  • Building pipeline of future Black healthcare workers, providers, and researchers
