  • “Before doing this book, I couldn’t even spell the word ‘art’ — but now I’m an expert, thanks to the internet,” Philip A. Mackowiak, MD ’70, MBA, joked before launching a presentation about his new book to members of the #UMBaltimore community and his family and friends on Dec. 4.

    Mackowiak, professor emeritus of medicine and the Carolyn Frenkil and Selvin Passen History of Medicine Scholar at the University of Maryland School of Medicine Official Page, delivered background and insight on the book, Patients As Art: Forty Thousand Years of Medical History in Drawings, Paintings, and Sculptures, during his lecture, which was sponsored by the UMB Council for the Arts & Culture.

  • The University of Maryland School of Law invited members of the UMB community to bring a lunch on Dec. 6 and enjoy the choral selections of the Institute of Notre Dame Select Choir under the direction of Daniel C. Meyer, vocal and instrumental music instructor. The program included an array of holiday pieces, such as “Ave Maria,” Leonard Bernstein’s “Yigdal,” and the gospel song, “He Never Failed Me Yet.” Among the soloists were Frances Philippe-Auguste, Destiny Bill, and Adia Hadley. All classes from 9th to 12th grades were represented by the 18 members of the choir from IND, a college preparatory school for young women founded 170 years ago by the School Sisters of Notre Dame. Lunch Under the Pipes is held several times during fall and spring semesters in historic Westminster Hall by UM Carey Law.

  • In this season of giving and generosity, we will be taking a look back throughout 2018 at some of the many ways the UMB Community has donated their time, talents and resources. One such example is a recent diaper drive held by employees at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) and the University of Maryland School of Social Work.

    Spearheaded by high school student Lauren Eisele, the drive resulted in more than 105,000 diapers and 25,000 wipes collected and distributed to B'more For Healthy Babies, local homeless shelters and programs such as Healthy Start and Head Start in West Baltimore. Proctor & Gamble also contributed.

    Eisele had an original goal of collecting 50,000 diapers when she asked Mohan Suntha, MD, MBA, president and chief executive officer of UMMC to promote the diaper drive at the hospital. Suntha sent an email out to staffers and the diaper drive began.

    Thanks again to all who participated!

  • The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) showcase each other’s strengths at the 11th annual UMB-UMCP Seed Grant Symposium. The symposium was the culmination of the 2017-2018 UMB-UMCP Seed Grant Program, which provides start-up funding for combined complimentary research projects, selected from a number of joint research proposals. The goal of the program is to encourage faculty members from both UMB and UMCP to use their respective disciplines to collaborate on new avenues of research that could not otherwise be explored by either university alone. The program brings together professionals from across all disciplines who may have never had the opportunity to collaborate otherwise. During the symposium, four research teams presented their research, answered questions, and discussed the next steps for their research. The topics of research ranged from engineering lymph nodes as a form of therapy for autoimmune diseases and transplant rejection to peer-advocacy and intervention for low-income substance abusers.

  • Former Senator from Maryland and the longest-serving woman in Congress, Barbara Mikulski, MSW '65, discussed community organizing, bridging the partisan divide, and the future of our political landscape on November 27 in the latest installment of the UMB President’s Panel on Politics and Policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). President Jay A. Perman, MD, introduced Mikulski, an alumna of the University of Maryland School of Social Work, to the crowd of more than 220 UMB staff, faculty, and students at the SMC Campus Center, noting that in addition to being the longest-serving woman in Congress, she was also the first woman to chair the Senate Appropriations Committee, and someone he is "fortunate to call my friend and counselor." Mikulski, who served in the U.S. Senate for 30 years before retiring in 2017, and who now serves as a Homewood Professor of Public Policy at Johns Hopkins University, said bridging the political divide all starts with relationships: "judge not." Mikulski also stressed the importance of Baltimore's participation in the 2020 U.S. Census, explaining: '85 percent of all federal funds that will come to Baltimore will be formula driven. If we don't get this right, we will disadvantage ourselves for the next decade.' A question and answer session concluded the event. The panel series was launched by Perman in January 2017 to examine issues important to the University community that are likely to be affected by the Trump administration and Congress.

  • Volunteers led by student organizers from University of Maryland School of Medicine Official Page (UMSOM) brightened Thanksgiving in West Baltimore, serving 850 meals of turkey, side dishes, and pie at Project Feast. They were joined on Nov. 22 by dozens of students, staff, and faculty members from the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and community volunteers. Leading the way was UMSOM Dean E. Albert Reece, MD, PhD, MBA, who took time to chat with diners and with many of the volunteers. These included two separate families of four with medical school connections – the Stevens of New Hampshire and the Glazer/Semmel family of Howard County, Md. And once again the All Nations Worship Assembly - BMore brought entire families, including a 1-year-old, to join the volunteers. Faculty sponsor is Prof. Sheri Slezak, MD, who advises the organizers and their committee of 2nd-year medical students. The 2018 organizers: Victoria Chen; Netsanet Woldegerima; Alexander Thomopolus; and Natalia Perez. Once again, chef Sheila Travers and co-chef Clinton Tates were commanding kitchen operations in the cheery cafeteria of Booker T. Washington MS for the Arts. The school is part of Promise Heights, the cradle-to-college/career initiative led by the University of Maryland School of Social Work, which was represented by Stacey Stephens, LCSW-C. All of UMB’s professional schools were involved in various ways, volunteering or donating funds and goods. A group of volunteers with connections to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County also participated, calling themselves the Catonsville Crowd. Before or after dining, guests were invited to choose clothing and non-perishables to take home. Health information was available from a group from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and from representatives of the University of Maryland Medical Center. The 2018 event was sponsored by the UMSOM Medical Alumni Association, the UMSOM Student Council, and Hungry Harvest.
