Harvey Brenner, PhD, professor of social and behavioral sciences, lent his expertise to a Bloomberg article about the effects of the nation’s weakening economy on the public’s health. The article also appeared in the Calgary (Alberta, Canada) Herald and the Business Report from Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Fort Worth Business Press featured Carlos Reyes-Ortiz, MD, PhD, associate professor of social and behavioral health, in an article about medical tourism and its impact on the medical industry and the public’s health. That same issue of the Business Press included a brief about the upcoming Distinguished Speaker Series event on Oct. 14, the announcement that Dr. Thomas Yorio was appointed provost and a mention of the Health Science Center’s collaboration with University of Texas-Arlington in a reprint of a presentation made by UT-Arlington’s President James Spaniolo.
DNA continues work
The DNA Lab appeared in the news several times recently: an El Paso TV station ran a story about the Center for Human Identification’s recent workshop for law enforcement officials in Las Cruces, N.M.; the Tyler Morning Telegraph ran a story about Rhonda Roby, PhD, testifying in the “KFC Murders” trial; the South Oregon Mail Tribune had an article about a cabin fire investigation in which the lab is assisting to identify a dead man; a Fayetteville, Ark., TV station ran a story about America’s Most Wanted helping solve the case of a murdered young woman, and the show has asked for the DNA Lab’s help; and that same case was featured in Northwest Arkansas’ The Morning News.
