We will meet monthly, on the last Thursday of each month, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. (Please note that the November date has been rescheduled to 11/17/22, due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.) Registration link. About the Facilitators: Katie lives in San Francisco and works in clinical research at UCSF. She finds solace in the idiosyncratic beauty of the city, and when she is not working, she is walking in the Presidio, baking, or curled up with a good book. She is passionate about advancing sustainability in healthcare and being the kindest version of herself. Dace has worked in a variety of industries as a young adult (hospitality, technology sales, event photography, etc). The one thing that has tied them all together is people. As a lifelong learner, he is committed to developing resilience by leaning in with curiosity and learning to embody a growth mindset no matter the circumstance. He enjoys surfing, music of every conceivable kind, and the quiet comfort of extended time with Mother Nature.  Sponsored by the UCSF Sheri Sobrato Brisson Brain Cancer Survivorship Program.
