Town Hall Meeting - Feb. 14

The first Town Hall of 2014 will be held at noon Friday, Feb. 14, in Levin Hall Auditorium. UTMB President Dr. David Callender will provide updates on UTMB’s financial health, construction progress, communication plans and actions in response to the latest employee survey. He’ll talk about strategic thinking in a changing health care landscape, with a focus on marketing targeted patient services and fostering employee engagement.

The meeting will include Q&A.  Refreshments will be available after the meeting.
