The Moy-Chang-Toy clan. No, it’s not a pop group from the ‘80s, it’s a group of physicians who have two things in common – they are all cousins, and they are all alumni of McGovern Medical School.
“The family tree’s a little complicated,” admitted Clifford Moy, M.D., ’85. “But it is interesting how we have all coalesced around the medical school now.”
Moy recently was at a family wedding when he realized the McGovern connection. His father, who is now deceased, is a cousin to both the mother-in-law of Marvin Chang, M.D., ’88, and to the father-in-law of Eugene Toy, M.D., R-’94, professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences and assistant dean for educational programs.
“We never knew each other while we were in medical school, but now we have this connection,” Moy said.
Chang’s daughter, Courtney Chang, was just added to the connection as a member of the McGovern Class of 2017. Moy, as past-president of the Alumni Association, delivered graduation remarks on behalf of the Association during the ceremony.
The three cousins are all from Houston originally. Chang, who practices pain management, a subspecialty of anesthesia, is still in the Houston area and also serves as a clinical assistant professor at the medical school and was a preceptor for medical students this year. Moy, a psychiatrist, lives in Frisco, Texas. – Written By, Darla Brown, Office of Communications
