Philip and Colleen Morey.

“I was very grateful to UB for giving me the chance.  I said, 'When I get an opportunity to pay them back, I’m going to do that.' ”

Philip Morey, MD ’62, was just about to graduate with a degree in geology when he decided to make a sharp career turn to medicine.  He was overjoyed when he was accepted to UB’s medical school.  Now after a long career in medicine, he and his wife, Colleen, have been providing scholarships to struggling medical students like he once was.
