Longtime former associate dean in Fresno, Dr. Joan Voris, passed away on February 11, 2017. Joan was a trusted and cherished colleague and will be truly missed. She retired in January of 2015, after 12 years as associate dean and 24 years as a faculty member.

Joan's service to UCSF Fresno was exceptional and a great boost to the School of Medicine's education mission. Under her leadership the residency and fellowship programs thrived, encompassing eight specialties and 17 sub-specialties, our undergraduate medical education, the Latino Center for Medical Education and Research, the Area Health Education Center, the Alzheimer's & Memory Center and various pipeline programs within the community.

Please read more about Joan's life in the announcement on the UCSF Fresno website. A remembrance celebration will be held at the UCSF Fresno building on March 24 at 3:30pm.
