The Women's Health Research Institute at Texas Tech Health Sciences Center will soon have a new name.
The institute's name will now be the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health.
Tech chancellor Kent Hance made the announcement in Amarillo.
The Institute was established in 2000, but expanded to include campuses in El Paso, Lubbock, the Permian Basin, and Abilene in 2006.
Mrs. Bush, who grew up in Midland and whose father attended Tech in 1932, is expected to attend an official renaming event sometime this fall.
