In his many decades as a physician, clinical scientist and administrator, Philip Eaton, MD, touched the lives of many patients and left a lasting impact on the health sciences community. “I focused on moving us to directions where we could use the creativity of research, teaching and patient care to make an impact on the people of New Mexico,” says Eaton, whose career at UNM began in the late 1960s when he became an assistant professor in the UNM School of Medicine.
