Christmas came early to The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley with a $1 million gift from H-E-B that will assist in establishing an endowed Chair for the South Texas Diabetes & Obesity Institute (STDOI).
Over the past year, the financial services giant and its nonprofit foundation have given $73,300 toward scholarships and athletics programs to UTB, UTPA and the soon-to-be UTRGV School of Medicine.
"We are at the beginning a powerful journey for the Rio Grande Valley. In rapid succession, The University of Texas System will open a new university in 2015 and medical school in 2016." - Dean Francisco Fernandez, M.D.
