Endowment, health center
named for Paul

August 2003

A crowd of more than 200 celebrated the establishment of the Leonard G. Paul, M.D., Distinguished Professorship Endowment Fund at the Health Science Center. The university unveiled an enlarged, framed color photograph of Dr. Paul during a ceremony in his honor.

The photo will hang in the patient waiting room of the newly named Leonard G. Paul Family Health Center. The center is at the University Physicians Group Diagnostic Pavilion.

Several of Dr. Paulís family members and former students were on hand for the special announcements, including Eduardo Sanchez, M.D., M.P.H., the Texas commissioner of health.

Dr. Sanchez referred to Dr. Paul as a remarkable mentor and a hero. "His ability to be a big-picture person as a department leader and a small-picture person working one on one with patients makes him a great role model," Dr. Sanchez said.

Dr. Paul is chairman emeritus of the department of family and community medicine. He served as professor and chairman of family and community medicine from 1982 to 1994 and was professor and chairman emeritus for almost 10 years.

To contribute to the fund honoring this outstanding physician, send checks to the Leonard G. Paul, M.D., Distinguished Professorship Endowment Fund, UTHSCSA, Mail Code 7739, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive, San Antonio, Texas 78229-3900.
