The City of McAllen recently approved the payment of $1million to the UTRGV School of Medicine for their continued efforts to make the school one of the leading medical institutions of higher learning in Texas.
The ceremonial “big check” presentation will highlight the impact this payment will make to the school and the region.
“In order to help the entire Rio Grande Valley grow and improve: as a community, in business, and most importantly, in our health, then a strong and vibrant UTRGV School of Medicine is tantamount to help make that possible,” said Mayor Jim Darling. “This payment by the City of McAllen is our contribution to help improve the health and prosperity of our region.”
The UTRGV School of Medicine belongs to the entire Rio Grande Valley, and community support is critical as the school is still in its start-up phase.
“UTRGV is very pleased to receive the $1 million payment from McAllen which will contribute to the school carrying out its mission to educate students and residents, and provide increased access to care,” said UTRGV President Dr. Guy Bailey.
