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.

Early blooms

Rose Garden Early blooms
Roses started blooming early this year at the Gleaves T. James Centennial Rose Garden on UTMB’s Galveston Campus. Philip Fox, a senior landscape technician, has taken care of the garden for more than 20 years and said the roses were “totally confused” by the abnormally warm winter. In fact, many rose bushes were in full bloom in late-February—that’s about a month early. Fox has been busy pruning the bushes and planting an additional 290 roses of 10 different varieties to ensure the garden is beautiful—no matter what month of the year it may be.
