It is with great sadness that McGovern Medical School remembers Kathrine G. McGovern, our dear friend and namesake, who died Dec. 1, 2023, at the age of 90.

Known for her kindness and commitment to community service, Kathy and her husband, John P. McGovern, MD, dedicated their lives to making Houston a better place, and UTHealth Houston was among the institutions where they sought to bolster education, scientific discovery, and innovation.

In the fall of 2015, the John P. McGovern Foundation made a transformational $75 million gift to the university and our medical school. In honor of the gift—the largest in the history of both UTHealth Houston and the foundation—the school was renamed John P. and Kathrine G. McGovern Medical School.

We are forever grateful to Kathy, and she will not be forgotten.
