Mayer Davidson ’57

box_davidson_mayer.jpgMayer Davidson ’57 recently received the Jefferson Award for Community Service, sponsored by the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Award Organization, in recognition of his work at the Venice Family Clinic in Los Angeles, Calif. Started in 1970 as a part-time night clinic by Davidson and a colleague, it has since grown into the largest free medical clinic in the country, with eight locations in Los Angeles. Venice Family Clinic provides primary health care and other services for more than 24,000 low-income and uninsured people. A well-known and respected researcher and an expert in clinical endocrinology, Davidson is a professor of medicine at Charles R. Drew University and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. His third book, Meeting the American Diabetes Association Standards of Care: an Algorithmic Approach to the Clinical Care of the Diabetes Patient (American Diabetes Assn., 2010), was published earlier this year.
