Thousands of marathon participants and their family members came by the Health Science Center exhibit booth at the Cowtown Expo, which was staffed by the Office of Marketing and Communications. We gave away one of the most useful – and popular – freebies at the warm and windy event: lip balm, provided by UNT Health. UNT HSC Logo
