December 6, 2017. Dr. Alinda CoxObstetrics/Gynecology physician at Austin Regional Clinic (ARC), has been named the 2017 Travis County Medical Society (TCMS) Humanitarian of the Year. Dr. Cox was honored at the TCMS Annual Awards Dinner on December 5.

Dr. Cox, who has been with ARC for nearly 30 years, was honored for her international humanitarian work on medical missions in many countries, including Ghana, India, Swaziland, the Dominican Republic, Peru, and Haiti. Dr. Cox has provided much-needed primary, surgical, and Ob/Gyn care to hundreds of impoverished and underserved women, men and children in those countries. She has also served as a past Chief of the Ob/Gyn Department at Seton Medical Center Austin, and continues her local community service volunteering at the Volunteer Healthcare Clinic in Austin and as a speaker at local churches, encouraging ways to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

In addition to the TCMS award, Dr. Cox was the 2014 recipient of ARC’s Dr. Larry Kravitz Award for Outstanding Service to ARC and the Community, given to those who go “above and beyond” within their profession. She believes those with privilege should aid those who are underprivileged, and her actions speak louder than words, as she has always helped when needed by her colleagues, her community, and those in other nations.

“Austin Regional Clinic is proud to have Dr. Cox in our organization,” said Dr. Anas Daghestani, ARC CEO. “As one of our longest-serving physicians, she is committed to the health and well being of not only her many loyal patients, but of the communities at home and abroad as well. We are honored to have that service recognized by her peers in the Travis County Medical Society.”
