Dr. Sharon Stern

2020 Distinguished Staff Leader Award Winner

Medical Director for the Health Center in Student Life
25 Years of Service at Baylor

Dr. Sharon Stern has modeled the behavior of a distinguished leader at Baylor in a variety of ways, especially this year with regards to the pandemic efforts of the University. She has managed the enormous impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic for the University with grace and diligence. She has worked tirelessly all year to ensure Baylor Bears were following best practices, HIPAA and CDC guidelines campus-wide. She often reminds and encourages her staff about the importance of standards and models this daily. Dr. Stern and her team willingly placed themselves in a position where they would be potentially exposed to the coronavirus so that they could serve the Baylor community and help keep every one of them healthy and safe. Dr. Stern’s example of servant leadership and commitment to providing top quality healthcare is admirable.

One colleague said in their nomination, “I’ve seen Jesus countless times through this impeccable level of care that Dr. Stern provides to Baylor and that is why she is my hero.”

Thank you, Dr. Stern, for being a Baylor distinguished leader.
