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.


Working Wonders

Oct 2, 2017, 11:56 AM by KirstiAnn Clifford


This edition of Working Wonders honors all UTMB employees statewide who stepped up before, during and after Hurricane Harvey to serve the needs of our patients, families, colleagues and communities.

The individuals above are just a few of the employees who truly worked wonders during Harvey. They represent UTMB’s three campuses, clinics and Correctional Managed Care facilities across Southeast Texas. From all of us at Impact, thank you for your compassion and unwavering dedication to fulfilling UTMB’s vital mission—to improve health for the people of Texas, and beyond. #WeAreUTMB
