Mercedes-Benz dealers of Greater Houston driving health education

Mercedes-Benz Dealers of Greater Houston partnered with UTHealth throughout 2018 to enhance health science education and community awareness.

As the 2018 Constellation Gala presenting sponsor, their generosity touched every part of our university by creating 14 $5,000 scholarships—two scholarships from each of the seven Houston-area Mercedes-Benz dealerships for students from all six UTHealth schools.

Furthermore, each Mercedes-Benz dealership hosted a House Calls event featuring UTHealth experts who presented the latest information on various health topics such as stem cell therapies, heart health, and sports medicine. These community-based events were live streamed on ABC13 digital platforms and included interactive Q&A sessions with the public.

Here’s how the Mercedes-Benz Dealers of Greater Houston scholarships are helping transform our students into the next generation of health science leaders:

“Every opportunity I have and everything I have accomplished thus far has already surpassed any expectation I ever had for my future. Being from a small town where very few people graduate college made the notion of entering a doctoral program seem like a dream that was far out of reach. But UTHealth and the Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land Scholarship have made my dream feasible.”
