SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The White House has announced the appointment of San Francisco resident William Ellison Grayson to the Presidio Trust Board of Directors. Grayson is a native San Franciscan who graduated from St. Ignatius College Preparatory, UC Santa Barbara, and USF School of Law. He practiced law for ten years in corporate, law firm, and government settings including as the Principal Deputy General Counsel of the Army in Washington, DC during the first Bush Administration. While in the Pentagon he oversaw the Army’s 2,700 civilian and military lawyers worldwide. For the past twenty years, Grayson has been a senior investment executive and is currently a Principal at Bernstein Private Wealth Management in San Francisco. Grayson fills the seat previously occupied by Nicola Miner on the seven member Trust board. Miner's term on the Trust board expired in early May. " We are very pleased to welcome Bill Grayson to the Presidio Trust board,” said Trust Board Chair John Keker. “ His broad professional experience and deep connection to both San Francisco and Washington, DC will serve the Presidio well. I would also like to thank Nicola Miner for her contributions to the Presidio. We will miss Nicola’s passion for serving youth and families, especially those from diverse backgrounds. We’re grateful for her service.” “ I was born and raised in San Francisco, and the Presidio has always been a very important part of my life. While in the Pentagon, I participated in the transition of the Presidio from an Army post into a stunning national park,” said Grayson. “ Since then, my family and I have enjoyed hiking the trails, working out, coaching my daughter’s basketball team at the YMCA, and attending cultural events. I am deeply honored that the President appointed me to the Presidio Trust board, and I’m excited to work with my fellow directors to help steward this magnificent place.” Grayson has served on numerous boards of trustees and investment committees, including the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington DC, the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, Dominican University of California, University of San Francisco School of Law, University of Hawaii Foundation, Archdiocese of San Francisco, and the Bay Area Discovery Museum. Grayson, his wife Laurie, and their three daughters reside in San Francisco, next to the Presidio.

Objective: To describe the symptom experiences of family members of patients at high risk for dying in the intensive care unit and to assess risk factors associated with higher symptom burden. Design: Prospective, cross-sectional study. Setting: Three intensive care units at a large academic medical center. Participants: A sample of 74 family members of 74 intensive care unit patients who had a grave prognosis and were judged to be at high risk for dying. Patients at high risk for dying were identified as having Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II scores >20, an intensive care unit length of stay >72 hrs, and being mechanically ventilated. Interventions: None. Measurements and Results: We assessed the degree of symptom burden approximately 4 days after the patient's admission to the intensive care unit in the following domains: traumatic stress, anxiety, and depression. Overall, the prevalence of symptoms was high, with more than half (57%) of family members having moderate to severe levels of traumatic stress, 80% having borderline symptoms of anxiety, and 70% having borderline symptoms of depression. More than 80% of family members had other physical and emotional symptoms, such as fatigue, sadness, and fear, and these were experienced at the moderate to severe levels of distress. Factors independently associated with greater severity of symptoms included younger age, female gender, and non-white race of the family member. The only patient factor significantly associated with symptom severity was younger age. Despite their symptom experience, the majority of the family members were coping at moderate to high levels and functioning at high levels during the intensive care unit experience. Conclusions: We document a high prevalence of psychological and physical symptoms among family members during an intensive care unit admission. These data complement existing data on long-term symptom burden and highlight the need to improve family centered care in intensive care units. © 2010 by the Society of Critical Care Medicine and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
