Southwestern Medical Foundation established Southwestern Medical College and helped to nurture its growth from a fledgling medical school into one of the preeminent medical research and academic centers in the world. Today, UT Southwestern enjoys an international reputation for discovering the basis for disease through research, applying the discoveries to the clinical care of patients, and educating the next generation of health care professionals. It also plays a vital role in advancing health care that benefits our community, our state and the nation.
“If you could make one gift, you would choose without question, the gift of better health.”
In the early 1940s, our founder, Dr. Edward Cary, wrote these words, urging the leading citizens of Dallas to support a great medical center in the Southwestern U.S. Please consider giving the gift of better health and supporting the education and research so important to our future.
