First Day in Class

Well today was my first in class and met all the students. I think it is going to be a great semester! All the students seem to be interested and ready to learn about pediatrics. This afternoon I toured an amazing pediatric facility in Gladewater called The Truman Smith Pediatric Center. I had no idea that such a wonderful medical facility was so close to home. On our tour, we were told that the Truman Smith Center was the only long term pediatric facility in Texas and only 1 of 4 in the country. This is an amazing opportunity for the students as well as myself to be able to learn about a wide array of disease processes that are affecting this particular population.

Also on our trip, I was introduced to Currier and Ives prints. I fell in love with them and have to show off two reproductions that I purchased.

The Florida Coast

Aren't they pretty?
