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.

Welcome to the latest issue of Impact. 

Beginning with this August/September 2019 issue, Impact will now be published every other month. As always, we’ll continue producing some of the more popular features in this publication, including the Day in the Life, the Hidden Talent and the monthly tips.

Meanwhile, the Impact team is planning additional editorial and design improvements that will be unveiled during Fiscal Year 2020. Stay tuned for those enhancements. 

This issue includes several articles about the people who are contributing to UTMB’s success. They include:

A Day in the Life feature about Curtis Dorsey, a bicycle patrol and crime prevention officer for the UTMB Police Department;

A conversation with Dr. Tim Harlin, the new UTMB Health System CEO; 

UTMB researchers uncovering methods to combat muscle loss for those who travel to space; 

The 2019 President’s Cabinet Award winners;

Commencements for the School of Health Professions and the School of Medicine’s Physician Assistant Studies Program; and

Numerous accomplishments and kudos in the Working Wonders column and throughout the newsletter.
