Dr. Frank Filipetto received the TCOM Proclamation from City Council and Mayor Betsy Price at Fort Worth City Hall on October 27, 2020.

The City of Fort Worth celebrated a half century of partnership with the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine on Tuesday night with a proclamation honoring the medical school’s 50th anniversary. 

Mayor Betsy Price recognized the impact the osteopathic medical school, one of six colleges now at The University of North Texas Health Science Center (HSC) at Fort Worth, has had on improving health and well-being in the Fort Worth community. 

They have been in Fort Worth for a long time, as long as I have,” said Mayor Price, noting the school’s humble beginnings in a bowling alley on Camp Bowie Boulevard.  

TCOM Dean Dr. Frank Filipetto thanked the Mayor and City Council for the proclamation and the City’s continued partnership with the University to create solutions for a healthier community.  

The presentation can be viewed on the City of Fort Worth website starting at the 18-minute mark.
