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.

    "I love playing basketball at Dana. Our team is really like a family, and we’ve grown so much over the three years I’ve been on the team. My freshman year I never would have thought that we would be able to win the EIL league, but this past winter we did! What makes the team so great is how we look out for each other on and off the court. My teammates are my biggest supporters and it’s always great when we get to welcome new members onto the team. I can’t wait to be captain next year."
