About this Event
Please join us for a special UCSF Health Webinar facilitated by Chief Accessibility and Inclusion Officer, Wendy Tobias. The focus will be on the UCSF Service Animal policy, working with patients and visitors with animals, understanding the ways in which we must evaluate the information given us by patients and visitors, and monitoring service animal behavior to ensure no barriers to care are present. As part of the hour, we also will have time for questions about specific situations you’ve encountered and your understanding of the policy.
