There’s going to be a memorial service honoring Dr. Chester Burns on Thursday, Jan. 25 at 4 p.m. in Levin Hall South. With his passing closes a chapter in UTMB’s history—a history he helped make and methodically captured and recorded in his book, Saving Lives, Training Caregivers, Making Discoveries. Dr. Burns taught at UTMB for 37 distinguished years. I had a chance to work with him early in my stint at UTMB, and his enthusiasm and love of history, medicine and UTMB shone from him like a torch. In all these years, there was one important thing about him I didn’t know and just learned: Dr. Burns founded the Institute for Medical Humanities. That’s a pretty impressive legacy.
