Grant will establish new geriatrics education program at TCOM

Recently, the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation board of trustees approved 10 grants, totaling almost $20 million, to strengthen physician's geriatrics training across the United States. The UNT Health Science Center was awarded almost $2 million for a program led by Janice Knebl, DO, professor of Internal Medicine and Endowed Chair of Geriatrics, who will develop the Reynolds Geriatric Education and Training in Texas (GET-IT) program. GET-IT will focus heavily on establishing geriatrics faculty development for rural osteopathic faculty and implementing geriatrics continuing medical education programs for practicing physicians through the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Smoking shelter will be removed next week
The UNT Health Science Center has a long-standing smoke-free campus policy that prohibits smoking anywhere on campus, including in parking lots and around buildings. To adhere to this policy and to ensure the health of our employees, students and visitors, the Health Science Center will be removing the smoking shelter on the circle drive in front of the Patient Care Center. The last day that the smoking shelter will be available for use is Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Super Docs to the rescue
Ten UNT Health physicians were named Super Docs in the December issue of Texas Monthly magazine. Each year, the magazine asks more than 40,000 medical professionals across Texas to nominate doctors for the list based on the question, “If you needed medical care, which doctor would you choose?” The list also includes Texas doctors who have received special recognition from their peers or demonstrated expertise in their specialties, based on replies received from the polled physicians.
