Living Legends

Known for their extraordinary contributions to the UNM School of Medicine, the Living Legends are those who work to educate the next generation of healthcare professionals, providing state-of-the-art healthcare to everyone regardless of the ability to pay, and supporting cutting-edge research to find cures and treatments that will improve the quality of life for future generations.  These individual leaders are dedicated and devoted to the vision of the UNM School of Medicine.  

An award first established by Dr. Paul Roth, past Chancellor of the UNM Health Sciences Center, the Living Legend award serves to honor recipients who demonstrate these extraordinary characteristics while serving at the School of Medicine.  The award is made at an invitational awards dinner hosted by the Dean of the School of Medicine.
