In this guest column, Elizabeth J. Protas, dean of the UTMB School of Health Professions, wrote about the generosity of UTMB employees during the 2010 SECC campaign. “The spirit of giving is alive and well at UTMB. The ambitious monetary goal established for this year’s SECC was $550,000, and I am pleased to announce we raised $624,246. The funds raised will help many of the charitable organizations in our community serve the needs of those less fortunate.”
