Alumni Scholarship Promotes Diversity
Kelvin Moses, M.D., Ph.D., FACS ’04, continues a Baylor tradition of giving back with his gift in support of the James Phillips, M.D., Diversity Endowed Scholarship. “I felt it critically important to contribute to future physicians who look like myself so that they have the same opportunities I had,” Dr. Moses said.
“Disparities in medicine will not disappear without a strong cohort of diverse physicians of color to address them.” Dr. Phillips served as senior associate dean for diversity and community outreach, and he successfully increased the number of Black and Hispanic students matriculating at Baylor during his decades of service. In fact, the 2020-21 class of first-year medical students was the most diverse class in Baylor’s history with a quarter of the class representing minority groups.
“I felt it critically important to contribute to future physicians who look like myself so that they have the same opportunities I had.”
