Dr. Gilad Segev is the founder of the Texas Tech Safe Ride Home Program. The program was started by Dr. Gilad Segev in 1996 when he was a medical student at the Texas Tech School of Medicine. The Safe Ride Home Program gives Texas Tech students a free ride home 7 nights a week. The goal of the program is to provide students with a safe alternative to driving home while intoxicated. Since 1996, thousands of safe rides home have been provided. The program is entering its 14th year and continues to grow annually. Dr. Gilad Segev is proud of the success of the Safe Ride Home Program that he founded.

In addition, Dr. Gilad Segev is an avid musician and a talented pianist and guitarist.

Ten O'Clock Classics is a non-profit group that offers music lessons to under-privileged youth and encourages outreach programs that support classical music. Dr. Gilad Segev has consistently donated to Ten O'Clock Classics and has helped in organizing concerts and fund-raisers.
