April was a busy month for the College, with events ranging from the groundbreaking of the new Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center bed tower to the Avon Walk that supports local breast cancer programs, including those right here at Baylor.
The 12th Annual Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers Research Symposium gave faculty and trainees the opportunity to present their latest work but it was also noteworthy for bringing together the editors of the leading textbook on pediatric oncology. The symposium was held April 7 in the Texas Medical Center.
Community Health Day is an annual tradition for first-year medical students at Baylor College of Medicine. Student-organized and student-run, the event provides important health services and information to the community. This year, it was held at Ethel Mosley Young Elementary School near the Sunnyside neighborhood just south of the 610 loop.
