June 20th Session- 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A
Presenters: Ashley Fox and Sydney Britton- School of Health Professions- OT Student Group
Topic: “Finding Your Rejuvenating Activity”
Overview: Join us to discuss the importance of self-care and how participating in enjoyable/relaxing activities regularly can add to your quality of life. The presenters will share resources and techniques for participating in meaningful activities.
Please encourage caregivers, family members and patients to attend!
"Time-Out “is a weekly educational/support session for caregivers and family members of UTMB patients, to support them in their adjustment and maintenance of their caregiving role. These sessions will not be tied to a specific diagnosis- all caregivers and family members are welcome. The hope is that these sessions will provide a chance for them to have “time out” to relieve some stress, have a little fun, build on care giving skills, decrease burnout and affirm that they are not alone in the role of caregiving.
These sessions are facilitated by UTMB students and staff and will occur every Wednesday at 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A. Sessions will last around 30 minutes and will address topics that falls into the following categories: Relaxation, Self-Care, Discharge Planning and Medical Topics.
If you have questions or are interested in facilitating a session, please contact Savannah Parks at firstname.lastname@example.org or 409-266-7542.

June 26: Come learn how UTMB Discover harnesses the power of data
You’re invited to join us for the next monthly UTMB TechTalk session, highlighting the “UTMB Discover” initiative.
The fundamental goal of analytics and UTMB Discover is to transform data from its obscure, raw form into clear information and actionable insights. UTMB Discover harnesses the power of data that our organization already owns, and uses it to generate action…quickly and efficiently.
Come learn how UTMB has launched itself headlong into this project, and how it has important and valuable implications for clinical care, research and education.
This informative session will offer an overview of the functionality and tools available in UTMB Discover today, and provide a glimpse at what is on the horizon. As important, attendees will learn of the ways that UTMB Discover may be able to support their own needs and professional applications.
The session will be led by Rev Sellappan, Director of Information Service/Business Intelligence & Data Administration – joined by a panel of “Discoverers.”
