Dr. Miguel Medina, who for more than three decades influenced thousands of students to pursue medical careers, died Wednesday, March 6, at the age of 69.

Medina retired in 1995 from his position as associate dean of student affairs in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. In his 25 years of service to the Health Science Center, Medina established the Hispanic Center of Excellence and a number of programs that exposed young people to health sciences careers and to the benefits of education in general. His leadership as a masterful scientist and educator will not be forgotten.
