For almost half a century, Betty Morgan and Tricia Beall, the daughters of Dr. Richard Mays Smith, have kept their father’s commitment to ‘the art of medicine’ alive. By investing in education at UT Southwestern Medical School, they have committed to supporting the highest level of medical education. This is a beautiful story of legacy and an example of how one man’s vision and example can touch the lives of so many people. We are honored to partner with this generous family in supporting future physicians. Below are photos from the 2023 Richard Mays Smith Award Luncheon.
