Huston-Tillotson University and the Dell Medical School at UT Austin have partnered to help underserved residents of Austin get and stay healthy. A wellness center, to be named the Sandra Joy Anderson Community Health and Wellness Center at Huston-Tillotson, will be run by a faculty member jointly appointed by both universities.
The schools plan to hire a team to produce training programs, new models of care and research. The center will provide health services and medical student training. The center will also address mental health needs in East Austin and communities with disproportionate burdens of mental illness.
