Buy groceries to support UNTHSC
Supporting the Health Science Center has never been easier. Now, all you have to do is buy groceries. UNTHSC has joined Central Market’s Fundraising Foodie Program and Tom Thumb’s Good Neighbor Program.

Central Market’s Fundraising Foodie Program
Present your Fundraising Foodie card each time you shop at Central Market in Fort Worth or Southlake and five percent of your total purchase will be donated to the Health Science Center’s Go Centers, where UNTHSC students mentor local high school students. Don’t have a Fundraising Foodie card? Get one for yourself and for your friends from Susan Smith in Institutional Advancement.

Tom Thumb’s Good Neighbor Program
Commit this number to memory: 11977. That’s the number for the Health Science Center’s Tom Thumb Good Neighbor account.  Link this number to your Tom Thumb Rewards Card and a percentage of your grocery purchases will be donated back to the Health Science Center each time you shop at Tom Thumb.  To link our account number to your Rewards Card, fill out this form and return it to your local Tom Thumb.

Groceries bought with UNTHSC  P-cards are not eligible for either program. For more information contact Susan Smith in Institutional Advancement at ext. 2174.

Smoking shelter to be removed from campus
To support the Health Science Center’s smoke-free campus policy, the smoking shelter on the circle drive near the Patient Care Center will be removed in the coming weeks.  The policy, which was created to ensure the health of our employees, students and visitors, prohibits smoking everywhere on the Health Science Center campus, including clinics, classrooms, buildings, state-owned vehicles and outside property.

The Health Science Center offers the PATCH (Positive Attitudes Toward Changing Habits) Program that includes group counseling and nicotine replacement therapy to help employees and students quit and stay tobacco free.  The program is currently underway and the next PATCH session is scheduled for the spring of 2009.  Watch Daily News for future opportunities to take part in PATCH and other smoking-cessation programs.

Send us photos of yourselves wearing your Employee Appreciation Day 2008 T-shirt at holiday events, at work, on vacation, around town, with your family … anywhere.
