It’s easy to donate to research

By
From page A6 | January 03, 2013 |

Many of us are still quite upset about the recent killing of so many innocent children and adults at the school in Newtown, Conn. After that tragic event, I wrote a letter to the editor, “Fund Wintemute’s Gun Research,” suggesting that people upset over the most recent killings consider doing something about it by making a contribution to the work of Dr. Garen Wintemute and his colleagues at the Violence Prevention Research Program in the department of emergency medicine at UC Davis. In my letter I mentioned that Dr. Wintemute had been named a “Health Care Hero” by the Sacramento Business Journal.

My letter was followed by a very good article by Cory Golden published Friday in The Enterprise, “UCD expert: expand background checks, limit private gun sales.” Golden mentioned that Dr. Wintemute has had a very important public health and prevention article on violence accepted by the New England Journal of Medicine.

As I read Golden’s article, I realized that I should have made it easier for people to know how to donate to Dr. Wintemute’s work. There are two ways:

* Write a check made out to the Regents of the University of California with a two-line note addressed “to whom it may concern” that can simply say that your donation is intended for the Violence Prevention Research Program in the department of emergency medicine. Mail to: Violence Prevention Research Program, UC Davis School of Medicine/UC Davis Medical Center, 2315 Stockton Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95817.

* Visit https://secure.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/giving/donations/online.html, go to the drop-down menu “Please select recipient” and select “Department of Emergency Medicine” and then close to the bottom of the initial form indicate in the special instructions box that your donation is to be directed to the Violence Prevention Research Program in the department of emergency medicine.

You can make a gift in honor of or in memory of anyone you want, including your own children, nieces, nephews, the children killed at Newtown or anyone else. Dr. Wintemute’s work is important, Let’s make a difference by contributing to their effort to reduce gun violence! I just made my online donation. Can you help out?
