Harvey’s Heroes at the TMC


See All Photos By Maggie Galehouse & Shea Connelly | September 1, 2017

Beloved children’s TV host Fred Rogers said, in times of disaster, to “look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” As Hurricane Harvey rocked Southeast Texas this past week, the Texas Medical Center was full of helpers, from the dedicated doctors, nurses and staff who worked around the clock for days to ensure all patients were safe and well cared for, to the local businesses that delivered food to employees and patients in need.

The Texas Medical Center is grateful to all who gave their time and resources to keep this medical center running as smoothly as possible during such a difficult time. Click through the photo gallery above to see just a small sample of the generosity displayed at TMC and beyond over the past week.

Everything a pregnant mother drinks goes to the fetus. Drinking alcohol while pregnant is a leading cause of birth defects in a fetus. The risk of miscarriage and stillbirth also goes up if the mother drinks alcohol. https://t.co/sqU2WDKKvb
