UCLA Medical Center Boards Welcome New Leadership

The Ronald Reagan UCLA Board of Advisors and the UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica Board of Advisors are two volunteer advisory groups that work with UCLA Health leadership to provide guidance and support for the medical centers’ greatest needs. This year marked the end of Donald Goodman’s term as chair of the UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica Board of Advisors, a role he held from 2013 to 2016. In Goodman’s leadership role, he provided steadfast support for many areas across campus. Goodman’s father Lawrence Goodman also served as chair of this board, and his sister-in-law Vicky Goodman founded and leads a philanthropic support group, The Friends of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. As UCLA Health thanks Goodman for his service, it welcomes Peter Darley Miller as the incoming chair of the Santa Monica Board. Miller led the development of the UCLA Baby app and his father was one of the early physicians to volunteer at the Venice Family Clinic.

Madeleine Kleiner concluded her term as chair of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Board of Advisors, a role she held from 2014 to 2016. In addition to her expert guidance as chair, Kleiner served 15 years as a member of the board. During this time, she served as the board’s vice chair and also chaired the Nominating Committee. William E. Simon, Jr. will succeed Kleiner as chair. Cindy and William Simon founded Sound Body Sound Mind, now part of UCLA Health, which fights childhood obesity by placing exercise equipment and curricula in local schools.
