Jean Tips, assistant vice president for Marketing and Communications
…was one of the 50 graduating members of the 2007 class of Leadership Fort Worth. The 10-month program broadens awareness and understanding of a variety of community issues while building community trusteeship.

Dr. Monte Troutman, chair of Internal Medicine
… was honored by the North Texas Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) at its annual gala for his work to provide quality care for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis patients. CCFA is the only volunteer-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of Americans – currently 1.4 million – who suffer from inflammatory bowel diseases.

Our Center for Human Identification DNA Identity Lab Team
… made its 100th DNA match earlier this month, and celebrated with a pizza party.

“These matches are associated with remains that could not be identified by fingerprints, dental records, anthropological reviews or a visual identification by a family member. The vast majority of unidentified remains cases are the result of a violent crime, and, in many cases, the identification is the first solid lead in the investigation of the homicide. Identifications made by the Center for Human Identification have already helped in the conviction and sentencing of multiple perpetrators. By taking these perpetrators off of the streets, the public is safer and families finally have accountability for the loss of their loved one.”
