Peggy Cook

Senior Executive Assistant

"As a veteran with UTHealth, I attribute my value in part to having joined a community that some might regard similar, in some ways, to the military experience. I have been recognized for the qualities that this prior service instilled in my work ethic, including a consistency and awareness that we serve all men and women in our capacities equally."

Jose Lopez, Jr.


"As a veteran, I feel appreciated at UTHealth because they value military service and your contribution to serving your country. UTHealth shows their true appreciation in regards to providing a multitude of jobs for the veteran population. UTHealth provides outreach programs to the diverse veteran community such as the veteran homeless population. It is an honor to work for UTHealth."
