Dr. Philip Darney awarded inaugural UCSF Campaign Alumni Award

Bixby Center Director Emeritus Dr. Philip Darney was awarded one of twelve inaugural UCSF Campaign Alumni awards in anticipation of Alumni Weekend. The awards recognize outstanding work by UCSF alumni.

Three winners were selected in each of four categories – The Audacious, The Innovators, The Compassionate, and The Dedicated – based on their distinguished service in research and education, transforming care delivery, or improving access to advance health equity.

Dr. Darney was honored as one of The Audacious for his dedication to women’s rights and reproductive health. UCSF News writes:

“Credited with transforming a stigmatized but critically important field, Darney brought academic responsibility to family planning scholarship by creating a recognized medical subspecialty. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine and has received countless honors for his contributions to family planning research and training.”
