Texas Children’s Hospital’s 21st Annual
What’s Up, Doc? Event
On Nov. 17, more than 250 guests attended the 21st annual What’s Up, Doc? event at Texas Children’s Hospital. The inspiring evening, chaired by Rachael and Jason Volz, offered attendees the unique opportunity to dine with physicians to discuss current health issues and learn more about the innovative research, treatments and incredible care provided by the hospital.
What’s Up, Doc? emphasizes the importance of supporting physician and staff education, as well as the funding of fellowships and other training positions to help Texas Children’s recruit and retain the world’s best medical talent. The heart of Texas Children’s is its people – the professional medical, nursing and health care staff who provide the highest quality patient care possible, train the next generation of caregivers and conduct research leading to new treatments and cures for pediatric illnesses and injuries.
