UT President Bill Powers has made many arguments in support of a new UT-Austin medical school—from job growth to research opportunities. Now, in this new video on his Tower Talk blog, Powers makes a personal case based on his own health history.
In the video, Powers mentions his past experiences with melanoma and pulmonary embolism, both treated successfully in Austin.
“I was fortunate that I got excellent care in Austin, but that’s not always true for every citizen,” he says. “A medical school at UT will improve health care for the people of Austin and Central Texas. It will also dovetail with the kinds of research we are already doing.”
