Taking a Walk for Healthy Babies
Jone-Ing Lin, research associate in the Human Genetics Center at The University of Texas School of Public Health, keeps a brisk pace April 29 in the March of Dimes WalkAmerica. With 115 registered walkers, Team UT raised more than $6,000 to support the work of the March of Dimes to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
“The Houston walk was bigger this year than New York, Chicago and Atlanta combined,” said Sabrina Midkiff, vice president for governmental relations for the UT Health Science Center at Houston. Midkiff, who is on the Texas Public Affairs Committee and the Houston Region Board of the March of Dimes, said, “Rose Mary Betancourt-Trevino did an excellent job in coordinating teams and our efforts to participate. I sincerely appreciate the time and effort she expended on behalf of this great cause.”
Betancourt-Trevino is senior coordinator, Special Programs, in the Office of Institutional Advancement.
