Alumni, faculty are at core of our success
Nursing is one of the most meaningful and rewarding professions. The great philosopher Albert Schweitzer once said “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
This issue of Tribute is evidence our alumni and faculty are passionate about their profession. They do what they do because the rewards are priceless. Every story, every page demonstrates their dedication and the partnerships they are creating—all with one goal in mind—to improve the well-being and health outcomes of their patients.
From testing and recalibrating high-tech hospital monitors to analyzing DNA in research laboratories, to traveling across the globe to assist patients in need— our nurses are truly invested and involved. Through research, education, patient care and community partnerships, they are implementing and improving health care delivery systems both locally and abroad. As you can see, ours is a story of success, and our alumni and faculty are at the core. Please take a moment to read Tribute and be inspired to pursue new paths to connect with us. Your involvement is essential to our continued growth and success.
Thank you for your friendship, generosity and support that make our mission to make lives better possible every day.

MAKING LIVES BETTER THROUGH PARTNERSHIP
William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, (pictured center), president of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, congratulates nursing faculty from the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL), Mexico, on their participation in the Salud: Nuevas Fronteras initiative. This spring, these faculty members completed courses in the School of Nursing that will build upon their teaching and professional clinical skills.
Several School of Nursing faculty members served as instructors and mentors in the program, which is a partnership among the Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together (MATT) Foundation, UANL, the University of Michigan, the University of Pennsylvania and the UT Health Science Center School of Nursing.
