Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ – Martin Luther King, Jr

04.14.22 | Day of Service

The 14th of April was the eighth McGovern Medical School Day of Service. On this day, 100+ students, faculty, and staff participated in service to the Houston community. We believe it is fitting to give back to the community that is contributing to the training of our future physicians. While we hope to make a beneficial impact to our surrounding areas, we also know that serving others results in a truly profound impact on the participants.

McGovern Kindness Initiative

In the midst of such challenging times, acts of kindness can initiate a limitless positive ripple effect.  Random acts of kindness are critical to our well-being as they necessitate empathy, selfless behavior, and social contact.  We at McGovern Medical School want to be part of the solution.


A student-driven interprofessional collaborative designed to uniquely address the health concerns of Houston’s underserved populations through substantive community engagement.
