New banners mark Health Science Center’s 40th anniversary

Look for the new banners along Camp Bowie Boulevard which commemorate the Health Science Center’s 40th anniversary. The banners are part of a celebration of four decades of innovation and leadership in the health sciences.

The black, red and white banners with a special 40th anniversary logo will remain in place at least through summer.

"The Kimbell and Amon Carter museums graciously allowed us to use the street poles to help recognize our special anniversary," said Randy McGuffee, director of Community Relations.

The observance honors the maverick spirit that opened the doors of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1970 to train physicians. That spirit has grown to include the inter-professional expertise of research and clinical care to best serve the community.

"The banners are one part of the 40th anniversary celebration," McGuffee said. "We plan to highlight our anniversary at various events throughout the coming months, culminating in our Annual Gala in October."

As UNTHSC celebrates its heritage and many achievements of the past, the mission of teaching, discovery, caring and serving will continue.
