Residents in the School of Medicine’s Community and Family Medicine Residency program could be in line for an upgrade in technology with new computers if David Voran, M.D., assistant professor of community and family medicine, meets his goal with a Golfing for Computers fundraiser.

Voran plans to grab his golf clubs on June 25, and play 64 holes of golf, walking the Nicklaus Club at Lions Gate in an effort to raise $64,000 to purchase new computers for each of the 32 Community and Family Practice residents.

Voran said he believes it is critical for residents to have access to the best and most current technology while learning and hopes to raise enough money through donations to provide new computers for each one. Read his personal blog for more.
