Guide to Top US Metro Areas: Dallas
Famous for its cotton history, its oil men, the TV series that bears its name, and the Dallas Cowboys (and their cheerleaders), Dallas¹ latest claim to fame is as “telecom corridor.” Its health industry is equally modern and forward-looking. UT Southwestern is the healthcare education and research engine of this powerhouse community, rising from Army shacks to a world-class institution with 4 active Nobel laureates, more than any other medical school, and 17 members of the National Academy of Science.
In boutique medicine, Dallas is also home to Dr. William Rea¹s Environmental Health Center, the clinic of last resort for many with chemical sensitivities.
