Many of us have had an opportunity to meet or work alongside the School of Medicine’s Pam Bass. Pam’s always struck me as a solid person, the calm in the middle of any tempest. She’s grappling with a major medical crisis right now, and a blood drive has been set up to help her out on March 5 and 6 at the UTMB Blood Donor Room, 1.210 John Sealy Annex. Call the Blood Bank at ext. 24861 to schedule an appointment, or Melanie Loving if you need more info about the drive.
