 Reach Out Read - Texas

 Purpose of Project or Activity
 Reach Out and Read (ROR) is a national program that seeks to make early literacy a standard
  part of pediatric primary care. Pediatricians encourage parents to read aloud to their young
 children and give books to their patients to take home at all pediatric check-ups between 6
 months and 5 years of age. Parents learn that reading aloud is the most important thing they
 can do to help their children love books and start school ready to learn.

 Name of Project or Activity
 'Sacred Vocation', a joint project of UTSPH and St. Lukes Episcopal Hospital

 Purpose of Project or Activity
 The project is a participatory intervention with all staff who interact with patients. The pilot
 funded by Episcopal Charities targeted patient care assistants from 3 units. Our goal is to
 heighten their self awareness as potential healers and harmers by the words they speak and
 the attitudes they manifest in relation to patients. We want to help staff realize that their work
 can be relevant to what ultimately gives meaning to and validates their life. We want them to
 recover the sense of vocation in their work. Our project is based on the premise that the
 hospital is inherently a dispiriting, depersonalizing environment, that the key factor in
 humanizing the environment is the staff, and that we need to nurture the spirit of the staff if we
 expect them to nurture the spirit of the patients. The project focuses not only on the attitude
 toward their work but on engaging the staff in a constructive effo to change the work
 environment for the benefit outpatients and those who serve them.

 Purpose of Project or Activity
 The Science Program for High School Students offers opportunities for high school juniors and
 seniors with interest in science to participate in a six-week summer internship program. Under
 the guidance of UT-Houston faculty preceptors, and in compliance with UT-Houston rules and
 regulations, students participate in hands-on research activities designed to motive them to
 explore career opportunities in the biomedical science and health professions. Here they gain
 an understanding of the roles that experimentation, critical thinking, observation, data analysis,
  decision making, technology, and communication play in the scientific approach to problem
 solving.

 Starr County Diabetes Related Service Activities

 Purpose of Project or Activity
 With support from the state, we provide free health screening to 100 individuals per week at
 our Starr County Health Studies research office in Rio Grande City, Texas. Starr County is
 98% Mexican American and is the most impoverished county in the nation. It also has an
 elevated risk for type 2 diabetes. The health screening includes glucose testing, blood
 pressure and limited testing for cholesterol and triglycerides. These activities are separate from
 the research efforts that we are involved in. We have been performing such services since
 1987 and have performed some 75,000 free glucose tests.

 designed to reduce tobacco uptake among youth, increase cessation attempts among current
  tobacco users, reduce exposure to environmental tobacco smoke, and eliminate disparities in
 diverse populations. Using behavioral journalism, newsletters are developed and disseminated
 to youth in schools and to youth and adults in other places of public congregation (churches,
 community centers, skating rinks, malls, etc.).

 Tickles the Toothbrush Show

 Purpose of Project or Activity
 Four students from UTDB went to Rice Elementary School and performed a live show for all
the
  classes. We explained the importance of brushing and flossing to prevent tooth bugs from
 getting in between your teeth. I dressed up in a blue toothbrush outfit. The hat was a two foot
 brush head. I wore a dentists coat and dress pants. We had the kids interact in a flossing
 demonstration with yarn. Four kids volunteered to be teeth and two were fingers. They
wrapped
  the yarn around themselves and jumped up and down tickling the teeth(kids). I feel like the
 kids really enjoyed the presentation.
