As our communities deal with the unprecedented health challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, HSC salutes all alumni and students who are serving on the front lines to keep our families safe, counseling those with questions and concerns, and slowing the spread of the virus.  Heroes one and all!

Regardless of location and duty, we know that our talented alumni are applying their knowledge, skills and compassion to improve health and well-being. Many of our students similarly are impacting health, by continued service in clinical settings and as volunteers – many staffing an expanded Tarrant County hotline to inform and educate the public.

While the duration and impact of COVID-19 still is impossible to predict, HSC and its family of alumni and students is uniquely prepared to impact lives for the better from coast to coast and around the world.  Salute!
