DIRECTOR’S SPOTLIGHT – Nancy Milliken
Summer has officially arrived and the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Womenís Health is focused on fun, sun and safety.
Vacations often are taken in July and August, and we hope you will be enjoying time off this summer. Everyone has heard it is good to take time off and relax, but many American workers do not take all the vacation time they have earned. Those who avoid rest and relaxation may be hurting their health and can experience burnout, reduced creativity and productivity, or stressed relationships. To promote good health this summer, we encourage you to plan a vacation, take a long weekend, or simply enjoy the long evenings.

ADVANCING WOMEN’S HEALTHCARE
Imagine a future in which every doctor who cares for you understands your unique female biology and values your preferences.
Imagine a future in which health care providers work in teams and share information with each other -- and you -- via the internet.
Imagine a brand new state of the art hospital in San Francisco devoted entirely to providing women a lifetime of reproductive health, where a woman can have a baby in a birthing center, receive the latest in breast cancer care, uterine fibroid treatment or incontinence all in a woman-centered environment.
That future is closer than you think thanks to the vision of lifelong women's healthcare advocate and expert Dr. Nancy Milliken. The Women's Specialty Hospital is part of a new $1.6 billion UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay that broke ground in October 2010.
