After a successful run that spanned five decades, the final Impact was published in January 2020.  Impact was UTMB Health’s employee newsletter. It evolved from a one color printed tabloid newspaper to a full color magazine with a digital component. We’ve archived the past several years on these pages for your review and enjoyment.


Reshaping health care with 3D printing

Sep 22, 2016, 11:00 AM by KirstiAnn Clifford

Andrew Maxwell-Parish, MakerHealth Space manager, shows incoming UTMB students how a 3D printer can be used to create medical devices and organ models. The printer was set up in the Moody Medical Library to highlight what the UTMB community has been making in the MakerHealth Space. Located in John Sealy Annex Room 5.212, the MakerHealth Space is a place for all staff and students to design, build and prototype using 3D printing, laser cutting, textiles, electronics, general hand and power tools, and much more. Stop by for an orientation every Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m. and follow @UTMBMaker on Twitter for updates on events.
