Holiday Celebrations

Campus Celebrations Brighten the Week

Radiology Chair Horacio D'Agostino, MD, delivered the featured remarks at Tuesday's Diversity Matters Celebration. In defining diversity, he said: "It means understanding that each of us individually or as a group is unique, and recognizing that uniqueness is a real quality attribute that adds value to Humanity as a whole." Click here to read his entire presentation. The Holiday & Campus Appreciation event Wednesday featured Mugs Photo Booth, fatal vision goggles, Anatomage 3D table and carolers. Attendees also donated a box full of toys to benefit patients at University Health. A video captures the highlights of both events, and photos from the appreciation event are posted on Facebook. A special thanks to Mugs Booth Photo!
