Recently Dr. Newton Gordon, Honorary Consul of Jamaica in the Bay area and Chairman, Executive Board, Jamaican American Association of Northern California was very instrumental in the procurement and shipment to the pediatric wing of University Hospital, a hand held pulse oximeter.  Dr. Gordon heard about the need after Chief Executive Officer, JAANC, Denise McCallaCreary was given a personal tour of the pediatric wing at the hospital summer 2008.  Sister Heather Davis, Head Nurse expressed great appreciation for the hand held device as they were desperately in need of the equipment. There are two additional stand alone units awaiting shipment.  Anyone desiring to contribute to this project may do so via the website or mail the donation to the Association’s address marked for the “UWI project”.
