Richardson to Receive 2015 Steel Oleander Award


Dr. Joan Richardson (SOM '70) will be honored this month as the Galveston Historical Foundation’s 22nd annual Steel Oleander.

Richardson, professor and chairwoman of UTMB’s department of pediatrics and director of the division of neonatology, will receive a cast oleander blossom sculpted by the late Galveston sculptor David Moore.

The award is given each year to salute an outstanding Galveston woman whose community service reflects the ideals and independent spirit of Miss Bettie Brown of Ashton Villa.

UTMB Alumnus Establishes Radiology Residency Fund


Two years ago, Dr. Francis Kostohryz (SOM '56) attended UTMB Homecoming events in Galveston and listened to President David L. Callender discuss the urgent need for more paid residencies in Texas.

That discussion struck a chord with Kostohryz and prompted him to establish the Francis T. Kostohryz, MD Residency Fund in Radiology at UTMB.

Read more about the life and career of Kostohryz and his desire to give back to his alma mater.
