Healthy economies
A Sept. 7 San Francisco Chronicle article cited a report authored by Associate Professor of Economics Philip King about the contributions of hospitals to city economies. "People don't often think about hospitals, but they really do play a vital role in San Francisco's economy and many other cities' economies," King said. San Francisco hospitals inject $15.3 billion into the city's economy annually, according to the report.

Second chances
Professor of Cinema Britta Sjogren discussed her latest film, Beyond Redemption in an Aug. 31 SF 360 article. "A lot of it is about how people rebound from trauma in their life and how they get a second chance," Sjogren explained. "It’s kind of a saga of how the forces for a new path in life are unknown to us. It can be unexpected, and it can be found through certain kinds of empathetic connections with people we would never have had the foresight to imagine would influence us in a positive direction."
