With Gratitude From the President
It is often said that age is just a number—and nothing impacts how young or old we feel more profoundly than our health. At UTHealth, we have a comprehensive approach to healthy aging that helps patients feel their best at every age and stage of their life.
In this year’s Out in Front: Healthy Aging publication, I am pleased to share with you inspiring stories that highlight the extraordinary contributions of students, faculty, and staff who are working together with patients, families, and donors to reimagine the picture of health as we age.
Through innovative programs, we are bridging public health services to improve well-being, developing technology to assist patients with memory disorders and their caregivers, advancing genetic research to prevent premature death in those with aortic disease, and so much more.
Thanks to your generosity, we are actively improving the health of our patients and communities through exceptional clinical care and research while educating the health professionals who will care for our family members across generations.
On behalf of the members of the UTHealth community who share your commitment to redefining aging, we simply say: Thank you.
