Free health clinic serving low-income, minority youths in Potrero Hill slated for closure
San Francisco Examiner

Stakeholders will meet next week to discuss the impending closure of a free UC San Francisco health clinic at the edge of Potrero Hill that serves disadvantaged youths.

The New Generation Health Center, which focuses on the reproductive health of low-income black and Latino youths, is slated for closure at the end of July after losing grant funding last year and seeing a decline in patients in recent years, according to a statement from UCSF.

The clinic is also closing because the building where it is housed — on Potrero Avenue near 18th Street — is seismically unstable.
