President David Callender launched his “Pulse” video update series in May to keep the UTMB family up-to-date on issues affecting the organization. In July, those videos covered:
A discussion about the recommendations provided by the Berkeley Research Group regarding UTMB’s Health System
A review of UTMB’s financial results as of June 30, specifically referencing that our institution had significantly closed the gap on our budget deficit for the fiscal year
An update on where UTMB stands with implementation of the recommendations provided by the Berkeley Research Group for the Health System
There are multiple ways to access Dr. Callender’s video updates. In addition to the recap in Weekly Relays, you can watch and listen to the videos from https://www.utmb.edu/president/pulse. Please use a modern web browser for the best experience. If you are at a PC without audio or speakers, closed captioning on the videos can be turned “On” and “Off” by clicking the “CC” symbol in the video player tool bar (the symbol displays once you hit “play,” on the right side of the tool bar). Closed captioning is now on by default.
You can also access the transcripts on the Pulse website to read the messages; a transcript accompanies each video. If you are a social media user, the videos (with subtitles) are posted to the UTMB employee Facebook page, I Am UTMB. Facebook will display captions if you mute the sound.
