ZSFGH Awards & Recognitions

Indigo Gill (L) received the 2024 Krevans Awards and Teresa Villela (R) received a Years of Service Recognition for her 30 years with ZSFGH.

This year at the annual UCSF Medical Staff Meeting, ZSFG staff were selected by the chiefs of the various medical departments for the Krevans Award – recognizing "excellence in patient care, as exemplified by clinical competence, professional conduct, concern for patients and interaction with all levels of staff, including peers." Among the recipients was UCSF Family & Community Medicine (FCM) resident Indigo Gill (PGY-1: Class of 2026).

Indigo Gill grew up in the Atlanta, GA metro area. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Xavier University of Louisiana where she studied biology/chemistry and earned honors in English. She then completed her Master’s in Human Nutrition at Columbia University. Through Xavier's early assurance program, she matriculated into the University of Rochester School of Medicine. There, she found her love for family medicine and obstetrics. Upon her graduation, she was selected for the Kenneth Woodward Memorial Award for students who have outstanding prospects for careers in improving the health status of underserved patients. She is proud to be a UCSF FCM resident; as it provides her the opportunity to foster humanity into medical spaces. When she is not in the clinic or hospital, she can be found journaling, enjoying live music, going to the movies, reading fiction, sipping tea, or taking a nice walk.
