From their press release: 

Elliot Trester, MD
TCMS Humanitarian of the Year

Bicycling to work through downtown Austin, Dr. Trester was intrigued by a small building he passed, so he stopped and went inside. It was the Volunteer Healthcare Clinic (VHC). Since that day in 2005, he has been a regular volunteer. His generosity with his time and skills has become legend—not only because of the VHC, but add serving on the board of Physicians for Social Responsibility, the board of Doctors for Global Health, trips to Honduras with MEDICO and Latin medical student training for MEDICC to the list. At least once a year, Dr. Trester travels for a missionary trip to assist in medically underserved countries.
Summing up all of his good qualities is an online review, “Dr. Trester is one of the best doctors I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a patient of. He’s funny, smart, caring, a good diagnostician, and he treats everyone with respect. I’m impressed with his charitable work too. He spent time in South America with Doctors without Borders, and was one of the first doctors in Austin to work with AIDS and HIV patients back in the 1980s.”
