UT Health San Antonio gets $25M gift, medical school to be renamed

Joe, J.D., and Teresa Lozano, Ed.D., Long have given $25 million to UT Health San Antonio, formerly known as University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

Through their gift, UT Health San Antonio will create a $1 million distinguished chair endowment for the dean of UT Health San Antonio's medical school. It will also develop a $4 million endowment for student scholarships. Another $20 million will go toward supporting medical school faculty recruitment.

In honor of the gift, UT Health San Antonio renamed the medical school the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine. The UT System Board of Regents authorized the renaming decision.

This isn't the first time the couple has donated to the medical school. They gave $1 million to UT Health in 1999 and another $25 million in 2008. The $25 million gift created the Joe R. and Teresa L. Long Scholarship Research and Teaching Fund.

"Good health is necessary in life," Mr. Long said in a statement. "Our goal is to empower generations of young people to enter healthcare and enhance the quality of life in our state."
