Make your reservation by Friday: Annual Dinner of the Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library

Basil A. Pruitt, Jr., MDThursday, November 7, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Old San Francisco Steak House

Basil A. Pruitt, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.C.M., will be the guest speaker at the 43rd Annual Meeting of the Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library. The evening’s program, to be held at the Old San Francisco Steak House, will explore a significant chapter in San Antonio’s history, reviewing the treatment innovations developed at the Army Burn Center that have revolutionized care and improved the survival of even massively burned patients.

Dr. Pruitt received his M.D. degree in 1957 from the Tufts University School of Medicine. He was drafted in 1959. Assigned to the U.S. Army Institute for Surgical Research (ISR) at Fort Sam Houston, he completed his residency at Brooke Army Medical Center in 1964 and went on to serve 31 years with the ISR. For 27 of those years, he was its commander and director.

New library exhibit: Art work by pediatric cancer patients

Cancer SucksA collection of artwork by children ages 2 to 15 undergoing cancer treatment at Methodist Children’s Hospital, San Antonio is now on display in the Briscoe Library 3rd floor lobby. The exhibit includes collages like the one pictured here, by a 7-year-old artist, and several paintings that were created in Tracy’s Kids Art Therapy Program. The program helps young cancer patients and their families cope with the emotional stress and trauma of cancer and its treatment. The patients, their siblings and parents are encouraged to express their feelings on their treatment experiences through art and play therapy.

The art program, which is offered at no charge to the patient and his or her siblings, provides a child-centered, open studio approach for children to interact while they are receiving infusions and other treatments. In addition to Methodist Children’s Hospital, San Antonio, the program has three locations in the Washington, DC area. To learn more about Tracy’s Kids, visit www.tracyskids.org. The exhibit will be on display through March 2014.
