We have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.
The newly named John P. and Kathrine G. McGovern Medical School is supported by a transformational endowment of $75M. This incredible gift will allow us to further strengthen the academic missions of our school and to enhance the work of the McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics. Given recent events around the world, the generosity of spirit and of vision of Mrs. McGovern and the John P. McGovern Foundation is particularly special.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday– a time for personal reflection and gratitude and a time to get together and celebrate with family and friends.
I am thankful for my wonderful family, my friends (old and new), my position at UTHealth, the support and welcome of faculty and staff, and the McGovern vision.
The McGovern Medical School has a stellar team to be proud of.
Enjoy your holiday.
