More than 1,200 UTMB employees participated in  "Walk the Walk" in recognition of National Employee Health & Fitness Day on May 19. Both onsite and offsite employees took part in this first-ever organized health promotion event, which was spearheaded by William K. Elger, executive vice president, chief business and finance officer.

“It was great to see so many employees turn out and participate on a day that was a bit warm,” Elger said.  “Gerald Cleveland and his team are to be congratulated for planning a fun event that promotes a serious message about taking care of ourselves. “
