Belief in college leads to private gift from faculty member

By Priscilla Santos
March 2010

For Richard D. White, MD, giving to the UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville came naturally.

As chair of the department of radiology, White said the best way to ensure that growth and development take place at the Jacksonville campus is through private support of the institution.

"It makes sense to support the very environment in which you are functioning and trying to enhance," said White, who joined the faculty in Jacksonville in March 2006. "When I came here, the energies were right."

White's gift of $10,250 to the James Bradshaw, MD, Memorial Lectureship honors the memory of Dr. James Bradshaw, who, through his 26-year tenure at UF, built the pediatric radiology program at the COM – Jacksonville.

White also contributed $35,000 to the Education Facility Fund, which was established to help develop an educational facility that incorporates innovative technologies that are essential in preparing medical students and residents for the health-care challenges of the future.

White said his decision to support the college has been rewarding.

"I arrived and caught the spirit of the place, and it seemed like a logical thing to do," he explained. "The fact that I can contribute on a monthly basis instead of one large sum helped in my decision."

White relocated to UF and Jacksonville from the Cleveland Clinic because of the potential growth he saw at the regional campus. He enjoys the relationship between the community of doctors, staff and students at the COM – Jacksonville.

"I wanted to support that spirit and community with my actions," White added. "I'm looking forward to bigger and better things with hope that these gifts help give the Jacksonville campus its own identity."
