His new dog is a two-year-old German shepherd that was bred, raised, and trained at The Seeing Eye, Inc., in Morristown, N.J., where more than 15,000 partnerships between individuals and dogs have been made since 1929. May spent three weeks at the school where he bonded with and learned special handling skills for his new dog.

May is a member of The Seeing Eye’s Board of Trustees. He was elected to the board in 2007. May is an innovator who founded Sendero Group, LLC, a software development company and manufacturer of the first accessible GPS navigation products, as well as a distributor of various adaptive technologies. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of California, Davis, and a master’s degree in international affairs from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.

May has had Seeing Eye dogs since the 1970s and this is his sixth partnership. His favorite hobbies include travelling, skiing, cycling and playing the guitar.

Darryl Hunter, M.D., of Davis, and Hernando Garzon, M.D., also of Davis, have been honored with a prestigious national recognition by Kaiser Permanente for their dedication to community service.

Dr. Hunter, a radiation oncologist in Roseville, and Dr. Garzon, an emergency room physician in Sacramento, are among 11 recipients of the 2010 David Lawrence Community Service Award.

The award recognizes physicians and employees who exemplify outstanding community service and demonstrate extraordinary efforts to improve the health of our communities.

Dr. Hunter, previously a physician in the United States Air Force, came to Kaiser Permanente in 2005 and dedicates his time away from the clinic to helping the underserved and underinsured access community health-care services through numerous efforts. In 2009 he brought together several organizations to form the Sacramento Community Cancer Coalition, which provides free cancer screening.

Dr. Garzon, a Kaiser Permanente physician since 1992, is an international leader in the development of disaster medicine who has trained more than 700 doctors and 2,000 paramedics, and has been deployed to more than 15 disasters in the U.S. and around the world. Dr. Garzon, working through Relief International, was one of the first U.S. doctors who rushed to Haiti to treat victims of the January 2010 quake and he recently served in Nigeria, assessing the possibility of setting up clinics to treat victims wounded in religious strife.
