This week has been a blur, which is why I’m behind a few days on my posts. This time of year always is fairly busy, and the announcement about Dr. David Callender ratcheted things up a few more notches.
The overall campus vibe about the announcement seems to be positive. Most of the people I’ve spoken to at UTMB that had a chance to meet him (regular people, not just the top dogs) had good things to say. The word from colleagues that worked with him at MD Anderson was upbeat and enthusiastic. More of us will likely have a chance to meet him a little later this year.
The School of Nursing celebrates its commencement today. It’s a big day for our institution and for those 230 former students and their families. Congratulations to you all; I hope many of you will consider staying with the UTMB family as employees. We always need great nurses and we know we train ours well.
