The Baylor College of Medicine Pediatrics Alumni Association brings together fellow alum. We coordinate luncheons and offer the Blattner and Feigin lecture series.

President's Letter

Dear Fellow Alumnus:

I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season and successful year. I want to take this opportunity to invite you to the 67th Baylor Pediatric Postgraduate Symposium to be held March 12-13 at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, Onstead Auditorium. The annual alumni association business luncheon will be held that Friday at noon, in the auditorium as well.

Your annual dues of $35 and any additional contributions now support the Feigin and Blattner lectureships during the Grand Rounds series, as well as the Reba Michels Hill Scholarship Fund for resident research. This is in addition to the Baylor Pediatric Medical Student Association’s project to purchase infant car seats for indigent families at Ben Taub Hospital. Thank you in advance for your continued generosity and support. We are now over $315,000 in total contributions.

At the time of this printing, the Feigin lecturer was unannounced. The Blattner lecturer will be D. Brent Polk M.D. from Los Angeles. All of the Grand Rounds speakers , including the above, can be viewed at the following on the Grand Rounds web page.

We must also pause and recognize those alumni who have died this past year-Elizabeth Batmanis and Jennifer Northrup.

Please visit our website as well. The address is  It has a full directory searchable for name, state, specialty, and e-mail addresses when available. In addition, our list of missing alumni is there—please e-mail me if you have knowledge of their whereabouts. If you have any suggestions, additions or subtractions, please contact me at
