Orlando family remembers a beloved son and partners with the College of Medicine

Douglas Williams Executive Health Program provides physical exams and health consultations for professionals.

Leonard Williams, an Orlando businessman, had a unique relationship with his son, Douglas. The two were very close and spent a great deal of time together. When the younger Williams died at the age of 40 in 2003, it was a difficult time for Leonard and the entire family.

Earlier this year, the College of Medicine dedicated the Douglas Williams Executive Health Program and gratefully announced that the college would continue to provide the program’s valuable service thanks to the generosity of Douglas Williams’ family.

The Douglas Williams Executive Health Program provides comprehensive physical exams and personal health consultations for professionals who have countless demands on their time. The executive health program has become a model for wellness programs throughout the country, as companies and business owners have discovered the value in preventive health care.

Leonard Williams, owner of Wayne Densch Inc., an Anheuser-Busch distributor in Seminole, Lake and Orange counties, said he is a very satisfied customer of the UF executive health program and often traveled with Douglas to Gainesville from Orlando for its services.

“Douglas loved coming up here and being treated at this wonderful place,” Williams said the day of the dedication.
