THE STORY:

The Justin Hughes Fund at UTMB is a cause "to raise awareness and provide assistance to medical students experiencing depression." This fund was established by Dr. John and Mrs. Susan Hughes, parents of Justin Hughes a student in UTMB’s School of Medicine who would have graduated from UMTB in June 2010. Instead, Justin received his medical degree posthumously. He suffered from depression and as a result Justin committed suicide in July 2009. His parents, family members and friends established the Justin David Hughes Fund at UTMB to raise awareness and educate medical students and faculty on the warning signs and treatment of depression in hopes of preventing future tragedies.
