    Take care of your hardest working muscle: your heart

    February 18, 2016, 10:15 AM by Dr. Sendil Hari Prasad, cardiologist, UTMB Angleton Danbury Campus
    Strive for a heart-healthy weight. Use a Body Mass Index calculator to find out if you’re at a healthy weight. BMI is an indicator of the amount of body fat most people have. If you can reach and maintain a healthy weight (BMI < 25 kg/m2), not only will you have more energy, you’ll also have a reduced risk of heart disease and other cancers.

    The sky's the limit!

    February 18, 2016, 10:15 AM by User Not Found
    More than 150 CMC managers got a first look at the new Jennie Sealy Hospital during the CMC Winter Conference in Galveston on Jan. 27-28. A “skylight” complete with cloud images adorns the ceiling above an intraoperative MRI in the new hospital. An iMRI is used to get real-time images of the brain during surgery and helps neurosurgeons achieve a more complete removal of some brain tumors. Managers also got a tour of Old Red and Hospital Galveston.

    A day in the life of a UTMB photographer

    August 18, 2015, 09:13 AM by KirstiAnn Clifford
    Coffee, lots and lots of coffee. That’s pretty much the only constant in Mark Kinonen’s work day as a photographer at UTMB. So it only makes sense that I find him – surprise! – drinking industrial-strength coffee in his office on a Friday morning, charging camera batteries for a shoot later that day and jamming out to an eclectic mix of music (think Miles Davis/The Black Keys/Bryan Adams) as he answers emails and gets his creative juices flowing.

    A day in the life of a nurse manager at the TDCJ Hospital in Galveston

    July 17, 2015, 09:45 AM by KirstiAnn Clifford
    “Organized chaos.” That’s how nurse manager Bryan Hicks describes most days at the TDCJ Hospital in Galveston. And when I join him shortly after 10 a.m. on a Friday morning, I quickly understand why.The hospital, which is commonly referred to as “HG” or Hospital Galveston, sees between 200 and 300 patients a day. And by patients, I mean offenders that have been brought in by bus, ambulance and van from prison units all over the state.

    A day in the life of a patient services specialist

    June 2, 2015, 10:00 AM by Mary Ann Hellinghausen
    If you or a family member have ever been a UTMB patient, it’s likely you have interacted with a patient services specialist, or PSS as they call themselves. And if you have been to the Orthopaedic Clinic at the Specialty Care Center in League City, you may have been greeted by a smiling Rosana Gomez.

    A day in the life of a NICU nurse

    They’re the smallest and most fragile patients at UTMB’s Galveston campus, and Registered Nurse Norma Salinas has the privilege of providing their care. Some people find their calling, but as a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Salinas’ calling found her.

    A day in the life of an IS Support Specialist

    April 21, 2015, 12:33 PM by India Ogazi
    If you haven’t used one recently, you probably soon will. They’re information support specialists, better known as IS (formerly known as IT). They’re the people you’re happy to see coming when you’re computer is on the fritz. Without them UTMB would probably come to a screeching halt, but computers aren’t their only responsibility.

    A day in the life of a social worker

    March 23, 2015, 08:48 AM by India Ogazi
    When you hear the word social worker what comes to mind? Do you envision a government employee who makes visits to people’s homes who are in crisis? Do you think of a person who has someone’s child placed in child protective services?

    A day in the life of a trash technician

    February 24, 2015, 09:19 AM by India Ogazi
    If you work in the Rebecca Sealy Building on the UTMB Galveston campus, then you’re probably familiar with Jarvis Givens. He’s the eight-story building’s sole trash technician and on any given day, you can see him in his bright red shirt, hustling and bustling through the hallways as he greets everyone with a “Hello, how are you doing?” and a chuckle.

    A day in the life of an ER Nurse

    January 26, 2015, 14:40 PM by India Ogazi
    When most people think of an emergency room, they probably picture ambulances with blaring sirens rushing up to the ER carrying patients with bloody bodies. They may envision a man clutching his chest from heart attack pain, as he’s rushed through the halls on a stretcher.

    A day in the life of a midwife

    October 6, 2014, 14:56 PM by India Ogazi
    When my manager first suggested I write an “A day in the life of” story about a midwife, I thought “OK.” Then I thought, wait a minute, am I going to witness a live birth with a moaning mother who’s refused medication? I imagined her lying in a kiddie pool with a midwife rubbing her back, wind chimes blowing through the wind and yoga music playing in the background.

    We’ve all seen horror stories of prison life through overly dramatic films and television shows. But what is life really like in prison? Our fellow UTMB correctional managed care employees, who work within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice system, have an idea.

    August 18, 2014, 15:17 PM by India Ogazi
    With the massive media coverage UTMB has received of late, I decided to sit down with Media Relations Director Raul Reyes for a glimpse into his work life. From the Ebola outbreak to chikungunya to our researchers’ recent fat-burning discovery, UTMB has been making major news and Reyes and his team have been working hard, behind the scenes, to make it all come together.

    A day in the life of a UTMB police officer

    “Safety first. Buckle your seat belt,” said Officer Curtis Dorsey as I climb into his police car. Dorsey just celebrated 10 years with the UTMB Police Department this past June, and today I’m joining him for a ride-along and a sneak peek into his work life.
