Donors Making a Difference: Doug Call
Doug Call knows what it’s like to be in physical pain, and he doesn’t want anyone else to have to live their life that way simply because they have no way to pay for medical care. That’s one reason he supports the Carilion Clinic Foundation.
“I was in constant pain,” he explains. “My hip was completely worn out, forcing me to walk with a limp and preventing me from enjoying the activities I love, including fly fishing, hiking and golf. I needed a hip replacement to alleviate the pain, resume the lifestyle I enjoy, and continue to improve my health through physical activity.”
Creating Career Opportunities for New Physicians: J. Randolph Clements, D.P.M.
J. Randolph Clements, D.P.M., gives to the Carilion Clinic Foundation because he wants to give back to the organization that helped nurture his career. Many people give back to their universities as a way to show appreciation. For Dr. Clements, Carilion deserves a similar level of support.
“Carilion has helped me develop my career, just as much as my high school, college or graduate school helped me,” he said. “The leaders within Carilion have provided support and nurtured me – when you think about it, that’s a lot like what a college does for you. If Carilion had a flag, I would fly it in front of my house.”
