Alyssa Bercasio, BS, MS

Project Coordinator

Alyssa Bercasio graduated from UCSF's Global Health Sciences Master's Program in 2020, where she had the opportunity to begin her work in California's response to COVID-19 through the Virtual Training Academy. Since then, she has worked closely with community-based organizations (CBOs) to engage community members in the COVID-19 response in San Francisco through the coordination of training and onboarding of contact tracers and case investigators from CBOs. This pandemic exacerbated and highlighted the need to take care of our communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, and through this, Alyssa continues her work with CBOs in San Francisco, incorporating her passions of community engagement and promoting health equity for all.
