The faculty at Baylor College of Medicine is deeply committed to helping those in need in our local and global communities. The College needs continuing philanthropic support to recruit and retain top-notch faculty and to initiate programs to improve the health and well-being of those we serve.”

“I have been at Baylor now for almost half a century, including 40 years as chair of the Department of Dermatology, serving four presidents. After completing dermatology training in San Francisco and London, I followed my heart and came back home to Houston, where I graduated from Rice University in 1961, and joined the Baylor College of Medicine faculty in 1974. I have never regretted my decision, and I give to Baylor because I’m proud to be a part of the Baylor family.”
