Vincent Hunt, MD, and Mary Kay Hunt, MPH, have devoted their lives to promoting family medicine and primary health care.

About Vincent and Mary Kay Hunt

Vince and May Kay's perspectives on health care began to form during their eight years of rural practice in northern Minnesota, where they witnessed firsthand the effects of social, cultural, economic, and environmental variables on health.

Vince directed the family medicine residency at St. Paul-Ramsey Medical Center (now Regions Hospital) and chaired the Department of Family Medicine at Brown University. Mary worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These experiences birthed a passion for improving the health of the underserved.

The Hunts have gone on to provide consultation to medical schools, family medicine residencies, and ministries of health around the world.

Honoring a vision

For more than half a century, the Hunts have drawn from their combined expertise in family medicine and public health to pursue "health for all."

They believe people are best served when their health care systems are based on the principles and values of primary care.

We share in that belief and created the Vince and Mary Kay Hunt Global Health Fund to support Global Family Medicine, an elective curricular experience for our family medicine residents.

The Hunts' passion for improving global health through education and training of primary care and public health professionals has inspired many who follow them. -Former American Academy of Family Physicians Vice President Dan Ostergaard, MD
