Though in only its second year, The Society for Leading Medicine is already positively impacting Houston Methodist. The Society is an annual giving program which is helping the hospital system fulfill its vision for the future. Through their generous support, Society members have given more than $3.4 million for research, education and patient care. Thus far, these gifts have provided resources for the following: the Translational Research Initiative (TRI), which will focus on rapidly moving Houston Methodist’s most promising research projects from the laboratory to patients’ bedsides; the Department of Spiritual Care and Education which supports chaplains and counselors in all hospitals and will fully underwrite the “Jesus – The Great Physician” statue at Houston Methodist St. John Hospital; The Society for Leading Medicine endowed scholarship program to support medical training for residents and fellows; and finally the Houston Methodist Scholars program which allows medical fellows in endocrinology, neurology and nephrology to care for patients in community clinics. The Cockrells welcome 2015 chairs Kelli and Eddy Blanton and Cabrina and Steven Owsley, and invite you to become a member of The Society for Leading Medicine.
