New UCLA Med Center to Help Military Wounded Warriors

Posted November 8, 2013 at 8:51am

UCLA reports that the university “has launched the first university-based military medicine center on the West Coast, thanks to a generous donation from two sons in honor of their father, the inventor, entrepreneur and philanthropist Ronald A. Katz.”

“The Ronald A. Katz Center for Collaborative Military Medicine at UCLA, established by an initial $2 million gift from Todd and Randy Katz and their families, will work with the U.S. military to address the unique challenges of healing and caring for the nation’s most critically wounded warriors.”

“By serving as a nexus for UCLA’s many research projects and services designed to help America’s servicemen and servicewomen, the center will help foster collaborations and partnerships both within the university and between UCLA and the military to increase our nation’s ability to care for wounded veterans.”
