The Dean of the Texas Tech HSC School of Medicine, Steven L. Berk, M.D., informed faculty and staff on Tuesday about the sudden passing of Dr. John C. Baldwin.  Baldwin was the former President of the TTUHSC.

The letter from Berk to faculty and staff said Baldwin passed away unexpectedly on Sunday. Specific details were not in the letter and is working to confirm details of what happened. 

Baldwin earned a bachelor’s degree at Harvard University and continued his medical training at Stanford University.

Baldwin was named President of the Health Sciences Center in July 2007.  He resigned as president in September of 2009, but according to his website he maintained connections with the HSC since then.
