Each year the #UTSouthwestern Toxicology Department fellows receive an annual invite to the @DallasZoo to view some of the most dangerous #reptiles on the planet. The Dallas Zoo has one of the most impressive #venomoussnake collection in the country. The annual visit gives the #fellows to an opportunity to view the anti-venom collection, observe the snakes up close and personal, and reinforce the training they do for venom emergencies.

Groundbreaking research in cancer genetics is showing us important hereditary patterns associated with pancreatic cancer. For example, mutations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes can be associated with exocrine pancreatic cancer.

Pain in the upper abdomen or back, often accompanied by weight loss, can be symptomatic of pancreatic cancer and warrants medical evaluation.

More than 3.7 million #outpatient visits take place within the Southwestern Health Network each year. #UTSouthwestern #researcher Arthur Hong, M.D., received the @texashealth Clinical Scholar Award for his #research into how to improve the cost, quality, and delivery of their #healthcare. Dr. Hong blinds a background in both #medicine and #economics to study ways to improve the efficiency and overall quality of care, such as his recent study in JAMA Internal Medicine outlining factors contributing to unnecessary imaging. http://bit.ly/2hsNrwa

MY activism is in the form of pushing for higher education. My goal is to inspire minorities or those otherwise disenfranchised to make their mark on the world through science. Ask yourself, what don't we know? It's hard because there's so much. But we are here everyday searching and discovering the unknown and undiscovered.

Grateful and blessed.
We saw my husband's new oncologist yesterday and received such good news. Completely different than his first doctor. This new doc is a world renowned specialist. We are so thankful. Prayers answered yet again. Hod is SO good. ♡

Kim and Jeff Chapman were brought together by tragedy; Kim had lost her husband to #braincancer while Jeff had recently just lost his wife to #pancreaticcancer. The pair were introduced by mutual friends as a possible source of comfort to one another and struck up a #friendship that eventually led to more. Their generous $250,000 #donation to the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center at #UTSW will help #cancerpatients and their families during their difficult journey. Mrs. Chapman is also helping establish a new Patient and Family Advisory Council (#PFAC) to ensure that patient and family voices are during their battle with #cancer. We cannot thank the Chapmans enough for their generosity and their passion to help. Copy the link to read more: http://bit.ly/2ikOjH6 -

Perfect verse for today as we have an appointment with my husband's oncologist, and I'm scared if I let myself think about it too long. It will be a defining day, as my husband decides which treatment to undertake. Prayers are greatly appreciated. ♡
