We are pleased to announce that Assistant Professor of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care, Charlene Blake, MD, PhD, has been appointed to the inaugural class of John A. Watson Faculty Scholars at UCSF. The UCSF School of Medicine Dean’s Diversity Fund was established in 2015 to support the recruitment and retention of faculty who share the university’s commitment to diversity and service to underserved or vulnerable populations. Each year eight faculty members are selected. Those faculty who are selected are named the John A. Watson Scholars in honor of John A. Watson, PhD, a pioneer for diversity, an inspiring mentor, and a tenacious scientist whose service to the UCSF School of Medicine spanned forty-six years.
