UTHealth dinner honors Dannenbaums,
Houston-based UT System regents
By: Cynthia Johnson, PhD
Shirley and James Dannenbaum were honored by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) at a dinner attended by The University of Texas System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa, MD, and 21 current and former UT System regents and their spouses from the Houston area.
Current regent Bobby Stillwell was on hand for the festivities at the Houston Country Club. The Dannenbaums were presented with medals and academic chairs—actual ones, not university appointments!—by UTHealth President Giuseppe Colasurdo, MD. Jim Dannenbaum was a UT regent for six years. The tribute to both present and past regents was not only a first-of-its-kind for UTHealth but unique across the UT System.
