Tomorrow: Science Café to review lessons from COVID-19
Our next Science Café, at 7 p.m. tomorrow, will take a closer look at how our scientists and colleagues around the world understand the impact of COVID-19. Dr. Trish Perl, Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, will share her reflections on the unraveling of COVID-19, how the medical community has responded to caring for patients, and the state of research on campus. Cardiologists Dr. James de Lemos and Dr. Sandeep Das will share details about creating a national database of COVID-19 patients to learn more about the cardiovascular implications of the disease. Register ahead of time to add the event to your calendar.
A toast to you! We've started our own Toastmasters chapter
We’re excited to share that we’re chartering our first UTSW chapter of Toastmasters, an educational program that empowers members to develop public speaking, communication, and leadership skills in a supportive, self-paced environment. Organizational Development and Training will host local Toastmasters leaders, who will demonstrate what a standard meeting looks like and answer your questions, at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 14. Register ahead of time to add the event to your calendar.
If you’re not familiar with Toastmasters and want to learn more, check out their “Why Toastmasters?” page and information on their Pathways educational program. You can also watch a quick video to learn more about the experience.

Share your vision for the beautification of our campus with the Texas Trees Foundation survey
In November 2016, the Southwestern Medical District (SWMD), in collaboration with the Texas Trees Foundation (TTF), completed a SWMD Urban Streetscape Master Plan that dramatically changed the way we would experience the outdoors on our campus and the surrounding Medical District. Since the plan’s release, both organizations have been working to initiate the first phase, which focuses on the roadway corridor and transforming the Harry Hines Boulevard-Inwood Road cloverleaf.
To guide this first phase of work, the wants your thoughts for the design and engineering teams. This survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. This is not a typical survey; you will mark up a map and answer questions about specific places. The survey will close soon.
