UCSF to close clinic serving low-income youths
San Francisco Chronicle

Faced with a drop in patients, UCSF plans to close a health center that serves primarily low-income youths in the Mission District and Bayview Hunters Point neighborhoods, a move that other health providers say may discourage young people from seeking care for sexual and other health services. New Generation Health Clinic at 625 Potrero Ave. will shutter on July 31 after more than 20 years of providing health services to teens and young adults living in neighborhoods with some of San Francisco’s highest rates of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.
