From page A4 | December 28, 2011 |

David Morrison, Yolo County assistant director of planning and public works, and Richard Reed, Yolo County planning commissioner, were recognized during the recent meeting of the California County Planning Commissioners Association.

Morrison received the inaugural “Planner of the Year” award; Reed was recognized with the “Commissioner of the Year” award, one of three commissioners recognized by region, among the nearly 300 planning commissioners that currently serve statewide.

Morrison has worked in public sector planning for more than 20 years, a majority of those with Yolo County. Significant milestones in his tenure with the county include completion of the recent General Plan update, the Wild Wings and Old Sugar Mill Specific Plans, six grants totaling nearly $2.5 million, the Cache Creek Area Plan and the Climate Action Plan.

Reed has served on the planning commission for the past three years as the District 4 representative. During this time, he was elected by his fellow commissioners to act as vice-chair in 2010, and then as chair in 2011. As chair, Reed has guided several significant and controversial projects through the hearing process, including the Solar Facilities Ordinance, the Climate Action Plan, the Putah Creek Solar Project and the Cemex Wind Turbine project.

Jerry Powell, professor of hematology and oncology, and director of the UC Davis Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center, has been awarded “Physician of the Year” by the National Hemophilia Foundation.

The Award of Excellence, announced at the organization’s 63rd annual meeting in Chicago earlier this month, recognizes “remarkable and distinguished individuals in the bleeding and clotting disorders community.”

Powell, who has been with UCD since 1990, has been instrumental in helping develop new treatments in hemophilia, hepatitis, HIV, inhibitors and von Willebrand disease, and is an author on more than 60 peer-reviewed articles.

An active board member for the Central California Hemophilia Foundation for 22 years, Powell has collaborated on numerous region-wide patient studies for the investigation of bleeding disorders.

The National Hemophilia Foundation is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for bleeding and clotting disorders and preventing complications of the disorders through education, advocacy and research. The national foundation has chapters throughout the country.

Through the efforts of the hemophilia community and the treatment centers, the life expectancy of a child born with severe hemophilia has increased dramatically in the past 30 years.

The UCD Hemophilia Treatment Center is a federally funded, registered hemophilia treatment center offering comprehensive medical, psychosocial and specialty care to persons with hemophilia and related bleeding disorders.
