"Dr. Jackson went on to work at San Francisco General Hospital, becoming the first African American surgeon on record to work there. He also served as a clinical instructor in UCSF's Department of Surgery and practiced at Mount Zion, both of which were but a few of the hospitals extending privileges at the time to African American physicians. Dr. Jackson unselfishly dedicated his medical service to help improve the health of his patients and their families living in underserved communities in San Francisco. He eventually established a private practice based in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood that was known for its commitment to its patients' well-being, regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay for services."
