Dear Members of the Baylor College of Medicine Community,
This week has included a lot of activity at Baylor College of Medicine, including a Virtual Commencement and Military Commissioning Ceremony. In my weekly video, I catch you up on the status of the College and the Texas Medical Center and discuss the parallels between COVID-19 and the early days of the HIV pandemic. Check the website for a comprehensive look at graduation and read an op-ed I wrote with Dr. Mary Klotman on the importance of science as we make decisions on coronavirus.
In this week’s video, I’m wearing a Baylor College of Medicine mask. Every Baylor employee will be receiving a mask and T-shirt. Your administrators will gather orders and we’ll get them sent to you. I hope you will wear them proudly.
Thank you for all that you do for Baylor College of Medicine. I hope that you all have a relaxing and safe holiday weekend!
Paul Klotman, M.D.
President & CEO
