BCM Pediatrics Alumni Association
January 15, 2013
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 65th BCM Pediatric Postgraduate Symposium to be held April 11-13, 2013 at the Texas Children’s Hospital Women’s Pavilion Conference Center across from the hospital. The annual alumni association business luncheon will be held that Friday at noon, in the conference center 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 $260,000 in total contributions.
At the time of this printing, the Feigin and Blattner lecturers were unannounced. You will be able to see them on the Texas Children's Grand Rounds homepage at http://www.bcm.edu/pediatrics/baylorpedires/Display_Grand_Rounds.cfm.
If you haven’t had a chance to read the history of the alumni association on our website, please do so. We were incorporated at the end of 1962, which means we are celebrating our 50th year. Please consider an extra donation to benefit our recipients and honor that accomplishment.
We must also pause and recognize those alumni who have died this past year-John Foster, Sr., John Curtis, Maria Nikolaidis, James Twining, and Phil Zeve.
Please visit our website as well. The address is www.bcm.edu/pediatrics/alumni. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
With Warm Regards,
Dean J. Gmoser, M.D.
President, Baylor College of Medicine Pediatric Alumni Association
