BCM Pediatrics Alumni Association
2014 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 66th BCM Pediatric Postgraduate Symposium to be held March 27-29th at the M.D. 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 $260,000 in total contributions.
At the time of this printing, the Feigin lecturer is unannounced. The Blattner Lecturer will be Rodney Willoughby from Milwaukee Childrens Hospital. He will talk on the Milwaukee protocol for treating rabies on April 4, 2014. 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.
I would also like to entertain your thoughts and ideas about possibly honoring an alumnus of the year. We have so many talented and respected physicians within our group, it would be nice to recognize some of their individual accomplishments. Please contact me by e-mail with your thoughts.
We must also pause and recognize those alumni who have died this past year-Marcia Litzinger, Tim Bricker, and Donald Fernbach.
Please visit our website as well. The address is http://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
