Priscilla Chan Awarded SF Chronicle’s 2017 Visionary of the Year

Pediatrician and philanthropist Priscilla Chan was recently awarded the San Francisco Chronicle’s 2017 Visionary of the Year for her philanthropy and dedication in promoting children’s health and education.  

Chan, a U.S.-born child of Chinese-Vietnamese refugees, has spent most of her years around children while working as a volunteer tutor and eventually as a science teacher. In her profession, she frequently encountered children whose education was stagnated due to health problems.
