UNTHSC honored by FWISD
The UNT Health Science Center was awarded Fort Worth Independent School District’s (FWISD) Golden Achievement Award for Partnership Excellence for the sixth consecutive year. The annual award honors FWISD’s community partners who support activities and programs for the district’s students and teachers. Annually, the Health Science Center hosts several programs that teach FWISD students about the sciences and scientific professions, including Adopt-A-School, the Go Center Project, Project SCORE and the recent Vitalink Internship program.
Outreach students to present research
On July 30, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) Office of Outreach will host a poster presentation session for students participating in summer outreach programs. The session will display research by 47 students from across the country who participated in the Health Science Center’s McNair Scholars, Historically Black Colleges and Universities Collaborative Summer Training Program in Prostate Cancer, SMART (Summer Multicultural Advanced Research Training) and SPHERE (Summer Public Health Education and Research Experience) programs on campus this summer.
A panel of judges made up of GSBS and School of Public Health (SPH) students will select the top poster presentations in each program. Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony immediately following the poster presentation session. Faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the events.

How should values guide UNTHSC?
Organizations constantly evolve, and navigating these changes is easier when the organization has a strong mission, vision and values. Surveys show that almost all of us know and understand the Health Science Center’s mission (to improve the health and quality of life for the people of Texas and beyond through excellence in education, research, clinical care, community engagement and to provide national leadership in primary care) and vision (to become a top-10 health science center). Now we’re turning the conversation toward our values.
What do the Health Science Center’s values — compassion, excellence, innovation, integrity, pride and teamwork — mean to you? Help the Communications Team’s Values Task Force develop common, institution-wide definitions of these. Take a survey, comment on the Values Blog, or talk to a Values Task Force member before Aug. 7 to share your thoughts on how we as individuals and the institution as a whole can display these values.
