Fulfilling Baylor College of Medicine’s goal of improving the lives of individuals is inextricably linked with enhancing the health of communities. The faculty, staff and trainees of BCM have a long history of developing innovative programs to meet the needs of Houstonians and people around the world.
The new “BCM Report: Service” spotlights some of the ways BCM faculty, staff and trainees are making a difference in the lives of people locally, nationally and internationally.
Take a look at the new publication and find out how:
- A former homeless individual turned her life around after help from the Healthcare for the Homeless program
- Patients are helping each other at Harris Health System’s Thomas Street Health Center
- Baylor Teen Health Clinic programs provide support for young teens and their families
- BCM education outreach programs are enhancing educational opportunities and opening career pathways for students in Houston, South Texas and around the country
- BCM students are giving back to Houston and other communities, often through the same programs that helped them find their way to a career in healthcare or science
- HIV-positive teens are learning from and depending on each other to shape their futures with the help of the Baylor Pediatric AIDS Initiative at Texas Children’s Hospital
- The faculty of the BCM National School of Tropical Medicine is helping quell public anxiety
