The university is proud to dedicate Pinn Hall in honor of Dr. Vivian Pinn, a 1967 graduate of the School of Medicine

Yesterday marked the dedication of UVA School of Medicine's Pinn Hall, named in honor of Vivian W. Pinn, MD. Dr. Pinn received her MD from UVA in 1967. She was the only woman and the only African-American in her medical class. Dr. Pinn's achievements are many, including serving as the Founding Director of the Office of Research on Women’s Health at the National Institutes of Health. Her legacy is one which the School of Medicine is proud to recognize. At the dedication, UVA Board of Visitors member Dr. LD Britt remarked, “[Pinn's] work at the NIH on minority and women’s health, as well as the disparities in health care, has fundamentally changed how we as physicians practice and how we conduct clinical research." Dr. Pinn stated, "I’m proud of what I have been able to accomplish, but what truly excites me now is a chance to look forward to the future – and to what the next generation of physicians, researchers and policymakers will make possible.” Read more about Dr. Pinn and the dedication of Pinn Hall:
