Your donations in action!

We are so proud of Jose Ayala, 1st year medical student from UTMB Galveston. Jose is from McAllen, TX and is the first recipient of the Hector P. Garcia, MD, Presidential Endowment. 
We are certain when Jose graduates in 4 years, he will be the kind of physician that embodies Dr. Hector's spirit in the practice of medicine.
The Dr. Hector P. Garcia Memorial Foundation is so pleased to present Jose with this award.  We are excited for his future and will continue to follow his career.
With your help, our fundraising efforts are not only paving the way for students like Jose but also a brighter future for our communities.
