Thomsons donate $2 million to UO
Julie and Keith Thomson gave a $2 million gift to the University of Oregon for a staff upgrade to the HEDCO training clinic, which is part of the College of Education, the university announced today.
UO plans to use the funds for creating a new position in the clinic, which will help provide low-cost educational services, according to the announcement, and will “serve as an advocate for the families who visit the clinic, helping them navigate different services and get the best care possible.”
Julie Thomson is an alumna as well as a member of the College of Education advisory council. Keith Thomson was the chair for the UO Foundation Board of Trustees and is the retired Vice President and Oregon site manager for Intel Corporation.
The HEDCO Clinic houses the Center for Healthy Relationships, the Speech-Language-Hearing Center, and the Center of Teaching and Learning, according to its website.
