On Thursday, November 17th Rachael and Jason Volz chaired the 21st annual What’s Up, Doc? event. Guests at each table had inspiring conversations with physician and hospital leaders about the amazing strides being made at Texas Children’s every day.
This year's event raised over $100,000 to support recruitment and retention of the finest minds at Texas Children's -- one of the top priorities of the Promise Campaign.
A Fare Extraordinaire, catered the event, which overlooked the construction of the new 19-floor Pediatric Tower. This expansion will provide an additional 600,000 square feet of space for critical, surgical and emergency care services, and will enable Texas Children’s to take care of even more children in need.
The heart of Texas Children’s Hospital is its people -- the professional medical, nursing and health care staff who provide the highest quality patient care, train the next generation of caregivers and conduct research leading to new treatments and cures for pediatric illness and injury. “What’s Up, Doc?” provides a unique opportunity to dine and discuss current health issues with Texas Children’s physicians.
Proceeds will support physician and staff education as well as funding and endowing of chairs, fellowships and other training positions to help Texas Children’s recruit and retain the world’s best medical talent. Attending this event is one of the many ways you can support patients and their families at Texas Children’s. If you weren’t able to reserve a table for this event or if you’re not sure that Ambassadors is right for you, you can still support the Promise Campaign by making a donation.
