UTMB students receive support
Around Texas

June, 2009

The Texas Medical Assn. Foundation has received nearly $70,000 to distribute among the 1,000 medical students from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston who had their lives upended when Hurricane Ike struck Sept. 13, 2008.

The hurricane hit land just east of Galveston Island with winds of more than 100 miles per hour, causing widespread devastation. Dozens of medical students had to find other housing and then work with contractors to rebuild their homes. Many said the ordeal exhausted their savings.

"The TMA Foundation is thrilled to funnel the [money donated by] physicians, medical students and others to help these future doctors get back on their feet and back to studying medicine," TMA Foundation President Dennis J. Factor, MD, said in a statement.
