    Visual Pathology

    A collaboration between Galveston Arts Center and the Department of Pathology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston

    Participating Artists: Steve Fisher, Mark Greenwalt, Colleen Maynard, Sarah Sudhoff, and Kamila Szczesna

    Collaborating Pathologists: Marjan Afrouzian, M.D., Brooke Blake, M.D., Hal K. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., Tais B. Saito, DVM, Ph.D., Vicki J. Schnadig, M.D., and David H. Walker, M.D.


    Through a collaboration between Galveston Arts Center and the Department of Pathology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) the exhibition Visual Pathology aims to explore and shed light on the relationship between the visual and the pathological. UTMB’s museums of anatomy and pathology were founded in 1891 with the opening of the medical department of the University of Texas. Collectively, the museums helped UTMB gain a national reputation for excellence in practical medical education. By the 1950s, like many other medical museums across the United States and Europe, UTMB’s museums were dismantled, due to complex changes in the medical curriculum.

    In collaboration with six pathologists from UTMB, five artists were given access to the remnants of UTMB’s historical pathological and surgical pathology collections as an inspirational starting point. Both artists and pathologists worked in teams to consider the history of the collection and present research undertaken at UTMB. The resulting exhibition explores the intersections between pathological and creative practices.

    This project was generously funded by the L. Clarke Stout, Jr. Professorship in Anatomic Pathology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and Marie Leterme and Rolf Pessier.

    Additional thanks to Judith F. Aronson, M.D., (Department of Pathology, UTMB), Michael Laposata, M.D., Ph.D. (Professor and Chairman, Department of Pathology, UTMB), Mark V. Deming, D-ABMDI (Pathology Research, UTMB) and Monique Papaddis,M.Ed, Ph.D. (Rehabilitation Sciences, UTMB) for supporting Visual Pathology.

    Add event to: ICal Outlook Google Calendar
    Join the Departments of Family Medicine, Preventive Medicine and Community Health and The Institute for the Medical Humanities and they host two discussions on gun violence and gun policy on June 11, 2018.

    They will host panelist Rajeev Ramchand, PhD, a Senior Behavioral Scientist with RAND Corporation in Washington, DC.   He studies the prevalence, prevention, and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders in adolescents, service members and veterans, and minority populations. He has conducted many studies on suicide and suicide prevention including environmental scans of suicide prevention programs, epidemiologic studies on risk factors for suicide, evaluations of suicide prevention programs, and has developed tools to help organizations to evaluate their own programs. He has testified on suicide prevention before the United States Senate and California State Senate. Other current areas of research include military and veteran caregivers (he has testified before the U.S. House of Representatives on military caregivers), the role of firearm availability, storage, and policies on suicide, the impact of disasters on community health, and violent extremism. He received his B.A. in economics from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. in psychiatric epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

    Also on the panel will be Catherine Troisi, PhD, Associate Professor of UT Health School of Public Health in Houston with a focus in Epidemiology.  Dr. Troisi is currently Associate Professor (tenured) in the Divisions of Management, Policy, and Community Health and Epidemiology and coordinator for the Leadership Studies Concentration at University of Texas School of Public Health where she teaches courses in public health and leadership. Her expertise is in infectious disease epidemiology and she has research grants in the areas of HIV and hepatitis. She also collaborates with the Houston/Harris County Coalition for the Homeless. Cathy holds a BA in Chemistry from the University of Rochester, an MS in Biochemistry from Michigan State University, and a PhD in Epidemiologic Sciences from the University of Michigan. She completed the National Public Health Leadership Training in 2011.

    Cathy is a Fellow of the Texas Public Health Association (TPHA), where she served on the Governing Council and strategic planning committees and assisted in planning the 2011 Annual Conference. She received the 2010 TPHA Outstanding Service Award. Dr. Troisi has extensive experience in both scientific research, starting her academic career in the laboratory, and then moving to community work and public health practice. This gives her a broad view of public health and allows her to "bridge the gap" between academia and practice while appreciating the contribution that both make to improving community health.

    The afternoon discussion will be at Research Bldg #6 room 1.206 from 12-1pm and boxed lunches will be served on a first come, first serve basis (rsvp to trgroh@utmb.edu).  The evening panel will be from 5:30-7:30pm at the Primary Care Pavilion, room 2.268 and refreshments will be served (rsvp to clboatwr@utmb.edu).  The evening event will offer free parking in the P lot directly behind the PCP building.  Please download the parking pass for your dash HERE.
