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.

David Rosenberg, presiding judge of the Yolo Superior Court, has been appointed vice chairman of the Trial Court Presiding Judge Advisory Committee. The appointment was made recently by California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye.

Rosenberg will share the vice chairmanship with San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge Katherine A. Feinstein and Sonoma Superior Court Presiding Judge Gary Nadler.

The advisory committee is composed of all 58 California Superior Court presiding judges whose duties include monitoring and making recommendations to the Judicial Council on policy issues affecting the trial courts, such as initiatives in the areas of legislation, rules, forms, standards and court administration.

“I look forward to the opportunity to participate in the Judicial Council decision-making process,” Rosenberg said in a news release. “Trial courts and the entire judicial branch have been challenged by increasing workload and declining revenues. We simply have to do more with less.”

Rosenberg has been on the Yolo Superior Court bench since 2003 and is serving his second term as presiding judge.

Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced that on Feb. 22, the California Office of Traffic Safety and Mothers Against Drunk Driving recognized the Yolo County District Attorney Victim Services Program for outstanding service to victims of the violent crime of drunk driving. This award was presented at the 2011 Law Enforcement Recognition and DUI Training Seminar in Rancho Cordova.

MADD State Assistant Director Brenda Frachiseur and MADD advocate Judy Utter presented the award to District Attorney Victim Service’s staff members Estela Morales, Linda McCumber, Linda Rodriguez, Jennifer Binger and Acting Program Coordinator, Laura Valdes.

In congratulating Valdes, Utter said “Yolo County Victim Services has done a wonderful job in serving victims of DUI related crimes in Yolo County. Your program is well-deserving of this recognition for their hard work and dedication through their services.”

The Yolo County Victim Services Program assists all victims of violent crime in Yolo County. The program offers services, referrals and assistance for victims of crime. Victims Services ensure that victims understand the criminal justice process and help Yolo County victims maintain focus in rebuilding their lives.

If you feel that you can benefit from services from MADD, call (877) 623-3435 or the Yolo County Victim Services Program at (530) 666-8187.
