Community Events and Resources

Media Component

A health sciences university like Baylor College of Medicine is defined by its commitment to its mission of excellence in patient care, biomedical research, medical education and community service – with a single objective: the improved health of the community.

With this commitment in mind, we provide a range of health-focused resources including seminars, lectures, online libraries, interactive experiences and featured events. These programs are forged with the goal of expanding educational resources available to the public and to and contribute to the health and vitality of all of our communities.
