Join us for an evening of music and creative expressions by members of the UCSF community and collaborators to support refugees and the people of Ukraine. Donations to attend will directly support the International Rescue Committee and the UCSF Scholars at Risk Program and its assistance in Ukraine. In addition to musicians from across UCSF, we are honored to be joined by SF Symphony cellist Barbara Bogatin. There will also be featured artworks for auction by Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health.

UCSF Vice-Chancellor and Provost Dan Lowenstein, MD, and the Director of the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, Bruce Miller, MD, will offer keynote remarks, with additional reflections from other special guests including Michael Magnae of the International Rescue Committee. Through songs, stories, and other creative works, we stand in solidarity for peace and recovery.
