Through the generosity of our community, over 200 gifts were made in honor of #GivingTuesday with a total of more than $50,000 raised. These gifts supported innovative, lifesaving research and patient treatments through the Infectious Diseases Research Fund.

Thank you to our generous benefactors for supporting Houston Methodist’s fight against COVID-19 and for also providing a small holiday gift to every hospitalized patient within our system.
