Health Watch -- Honored faculty

Health Watch is a Public Service of the Office of News and Publications and is intended to provide general information only and should not replace the advice of a medical professional. You should contact your physician if you have questions about any of these topics.

This week on "Healthwatch," we've been talking about the people who bring you this long-running radio health feature: the faculty at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. Not only does U-T Southwestern have four Nobel Prize winners on its faculty, it also has a number of faculty members who have been honored by other organizations.

Fifteen U-T Southwestern faculty members have been inducted into the National Academy of Sciences. Recently, two faculty members were named to the Institute of Medicine by the National Academy of Sciences, bringing the total number to 17. That's more than at any other institution in Texas and the southwest.

Dr. Helen Hobbs, one recent inductee, leads the Dallas Heart Study and researches heart disease. The other inductee, Dr. John McConnell, is an international authority on prostate disease.

Now you know that when you listen to "Healthwatch," you're getting advice from some of the best in the business.
