Trustworthy information and guidance
Baylor faculty share expertise with the public; help shape policy
Faculty members at Baylor College of Medicine have an important role in addition to being educators, scientists and physicians.
They share their expertise with the public, whether through news media interviews, testifying before government committees, sitting on panels that make decisions on health guidelines or meeting with public officials, health organizations and community groups.
From the early days of Dr. Michael DeBakey speaking out against smoking to our faculty today providing trustworthy information on issues like zika virus and flu, our faculty speak up.
They also provide responsible tips on everything from training for a marathon to packing a healthy lunch. And they help set policy, from recommendations on cancer screening tests to access to care.
This is the type of community service every Baylor College of Medicine faculty member is expected to provide.
"Since coming to Houston in 1943, Baylor College of Medicine has been an integral part of Houston’s transition into one of the nation’s greatest cities. We are proud to be part of what makes Houston great."
- Paul Klotman, M.D., President, CEO and Executive Dean, Baylor College of Medicine
