Holiday story possibilities from the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio

The holidays, your senior and you … Faculty can discuss how to help older loved ones during the holidays with cooking, taking medications, travel, depression and other challenges.

Navigating the holidays with diabetes … A faculty diabetes specialist can be paired with a faculty nutrition expert to discuss this fun, yet stressful, time of the year when sweets abound and diabetics need alternatives.

When cancer tries to steal holidays’ joy … The hope of a new year may be lost to those newly diagnosed with cancer, but with improved treatments that turn more cancers into manageable and chronic diseases, that hope need not be lost.

Call External Affairs to schedule these or any of your holiday health- or science-related stories.
