A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE UTMB HEALTH PRESIDENT
THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS MEDICAL BRANCH (UTMB Health) has been
dedicated to improving health in Texas and beyond since 1891. Part of that
mission involves educating not only our students, but also our communities,
about preventing (when possible) and managing illness and injury.
In that spirit, I wanted to let you know that UTMB Health has launched a new
web site today that contains information regarding the novel coronavirus and
the disease it causes, COVID-19. The site is now live and can be reached at
https://www.utmb.edu/covid-19. Please feel free to share it with your
employees, students, parents and other constituents in your community.
There has been much coverage of coronavirus and COVID-19 in commercial
media and on social media. Our aim is to help you separate fact from myth and
to access reliable sources of information about this emerging infectious disease.
As a longtime international leader in infectious diseases research and with
clinical faculty who have deep expertise in caring for patients with infectious
diseases, we feel a responsibility to help our neighbors stay informed about this
Researchers at UTMB Health and around the world are working quickly to better
understand the virus, so check the site frequently for updates.
We at UTMB Health are grateful to be part of such a dynamic region, and we feel
privileged to serve your community. We hope these resources are helpful to you.
Please let us know if you have suggestions or additional questions.
Ben G. Raimer, MD, MA, FAAP
President ad interim
