About HERE


The HERE Initiative is UC San Diego Health Sciences’ far-reaching and ambitious outreach program, designed to engage with historically underserved communities in the southern and southeastern regions of San Diego County. It will provide key health care services, educational and workforce development opportunities, and avenues for groundbreaking community and research partnerships.

Nine projects will expand outreach activities into these regions and enhance our capacity to better meet our tripartite mission of:

  • (H) delivering health care excellence,
  • (E) providing education for future health care practitioners and
  • (R) advancing research,
  • (E) thus empowering local communities.

What’s Ahead

The HERE Initiative cannot succeed without the participation of the community. We welcome opportunities to collaborate with community members and organizations on any of these projects and appreciate your cooperation as the initiative is developed further.

Let’s Work Together

If you are interested in partnering on any of these projects or would like to take advantage of any of these expanded services, please contact David Mier, coordinator of Government and Community Affairs for UC San Diego Health Sciences at or 619-543-5513.
