The UT Health San Antonio chapter is named for emeritus professor Marvin Forland, M.D., a founding faculty member. He was instrumental in the creation and development of the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics (CMHE), which teaches ethics and professionalism while nurturing empathy and humanitarian values, and which oversees the Gold Humanism Honor Society. Though retired, Dr. Forland continues to work each day at the CMHE.
