They are pictured (standing) with Leonel Vela, M.D., (fifth from left) regional academic dean for the RAHC. The Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation gave $1.46 million four years ago to establish the Kleberg Medical Scholars Program, which is thriving today.

The issues that most affect the Lower Rio Grande Valley are under study by internal medicine residents from the RAHC Medical Education Division, operated by the Health Science Center Medical School in Harlingen.

Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen assists the program as the primary inpatient teaching facility for the residents. Su Clinica is the primary ambulatory care teaching facility.
