Dr. Susan Hamant Hou '64

Dr. Susan Hamant Hou '64 made history in 2002 when she became the first U.S. physician to donate a kidney to an unrelated patient. Dr. Hou is also one of the co-founders of a community medical clinic located in the rain forest in eastern Bolivia.
In 2001, Dr. Hou partnered with her husband and colleague to establish a community medical clinic, the Centro Medico Humberto Parrac, located in the rain forest in eastern Bolivia. The Centro Medico clinic provides free and subsidized health care to the residents of Palacios and surrounding Bolivian villages, helping more than 3,000 patients a year. It is predominantly staffed by volunteer American and Bolivian physicians, including Dr. Hou's two sons who volunteer extensively at the clinic.
Dr. Hou received Dana Hall's 2009 Distinguished Alumna Award.

    "My favorite Dana Hall memory would be the first time I ever sang the Alma Mater with my fellow classmates. That was most definitely the first time I felt like I was truly a part of something. Joining hands with my future Silver Sisters made me truly feel like I was a Dana girl."
