Alison Block, M.D.
Alison Block, MD UCSF; Ali spent the first 22 years of her life on the East Coast, growing up in New York City and attending college at Yale University. After graduation, she packed up her station wagon and enthusiastically drove across the country to “sunny” California. After getting over the initial shock of a cold, foggy summer in San Francisco, Ali promptly fell in love with the Bay Area. She spent a few years working at local health service organizations before starting medical school at UCSF. During medical school she took a year leave to pursue a research project in South India focusing on the impact of HIV on women’s reproductive health. She is excited about the broad scope of family medicine, and also has particular interests in reproductive health, mental and behavioral health, and public health and health policy. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking, backpacking, skiing, reading, cooking, yoga-ing, swimming, and hot tubbing.
