Texas on My Mind - Friday, April 20, 2018
From a hurricane that displaced a million Texans to the Houston Astros pulling out a big win in the World Series, we are Texas Strong during both highs and lows. It is only fitting that this year’s theme for the Baylor College of Medicine celebration is Texas on My Mind and that the funds raised will support our community’s mental health. Grab your boots, dust off your hat and saddle up for a boot-scootin‘ good time at the beautiful new Post Oak Hotel. Texas country music will be by Jack Ingram, Bruce Robison and John Baumann.
Raising Funds for Mental Health
Following the devastation our city endured from Hurricane Harvey, the need for advancements in the treatment of mental health diseases and disorders is more important than ever and, fortunately, Baylor has the experts to help. Professor and Chair Dr. Wayne Goodman, Baylor’s Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, leads Baylor into the next phase of growth. The time is ripe to leverage the institution’s world-class genetics and basic neuroscience expertise to further the understanding of mental and substance use disorders. These collaborations will unlock enormous untapped potential for translating discoveries in the basic sciences into advances in patient care.
Jack Ingram and Bruce Robison
Join us for a musical tour through Texas’s great dancehalls with Texas Country singer-songwriters Jack Ingram and Bruce Robison and Texas crooner John Baumann. Two of the Lone Star State’s finest tunesmiths, Bruce and Jack have written some of the industry’s biggest hits for country music legends in addition to their own chart-topping anthems. These Hill Country troubadours will bring good ol’ fashioned fun and a boot scootin’ good time.
