A practicing family physician for nearly two decades, Reed was one of the first faculty hired last year by Dr. Stephen Spann, the founding dean of the new medical school. Spann, along with Reed’s parents, were in attendance at the awards ceremony last month at the Briar Club in River Oaks.
“I’m humbled and totally surprised by this recognition and grateful for the career I’ve had thus far,” he said. “It means so much to have my parents and Dr. Spann here because they have helped put me in a position to be successful. I’m especially grateful for Dr. Spann’s mentorship.”
