Discussion panelists will include psychologists/faculty members from our Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Dr. Angela Heads, Dr. Melba Hernandez-Tejada, and Dr. Andrea Taylor, and Student Counseling Services clinicians, Dr. Sudhakar Selvaraj, Dr. Jennifer Bahrman, and me.

From GSBS “We stand with the black community and are pained by the recent killing of George Floyd and what it represents. During these challenging times, the Graduate School wants to affirm its commitment to the inclusion and equality of the community we serve. We embrace their many interconnections of citizenship, race, ethnicity, ability, sex, gender identity/expression, orientation, religion, age, socioeconomic, family, and military status of our many members. We acknowledge our differences and know that it is our unique perspectives, experiences, and identities that make the GSBS an enriching place for education and research that attracts such a diverse population. We ask that you, as a member of the GSBS community, help us and each other strive to consistently excel in making our school a welcoming place for all. The GSBS invites you to participate in the GSA Town Hall – “A conversation on race, hope, and healing” on Thursday at 3 p.m. (go.uth.edu/GSBSgsa-tw-j20). We hope you can attend and we look forward to hearing your voices and concerns.”

Drive for Science Sign-Up

Hello Outreach volunteers,

March for Science - Houston is hosting a donation drive and blood drive called "Drive for Science" on November 11, from noon - 4pm at Waltrip High School.

This event is to collect supplies for the children and schools that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Some schools were damaged so badly, they are closed for the entire school year. Others have sustained severe damage, leaving thousands of students displaced from their familiar classrooms.

Since there is also a blood drive, Outreach would like to host hands-on activity tables for kids who are waiting for their parents to donate blood. We have a variety of activities already planned, including a puppy genetics table (3-4 volunteers) and optical illusions table (2 volunteers).

This event is 4 hours long, and volunteers can sign up for 2 hour shifts: https://goo.gl/4XgEWZ.

This is a great opportunity to not only help the community in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, but also to teach and engage with kids about science!

Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,
GSBS Community Outreach Coordinators
