Mr. Maurice Kanbar, a dear friend of Mr. and Mrs. Osher and a generous benefactor to the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Health, passed peacefully on August 20, 2022, at the age of 93. A philanthropist, innovator, and entrepreneur, Mr. Kanbar made indelible contributions to modern society and medicine.  

Mr. Kanbar used his time and influence to improve his community. After moving to San Francisco in 1984, he funded the Kanbar Cardiac Care Center at California Pacific Medical Center and gave generously to organizations such as the Exploratorium, KQED, San Francisco Symphony, the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco, as well as the Osher Center for Integrative Health.  

We honor Mr. Kanbar’s generosity and friendship over the years and send our deepest sympathies to his family.
