James J. Young, Ph.D., has long considered San Antonio home.
During his 33 years in the U.S. Army Medical Department, Dr. Young and his family often found themselves returning to the familiar territory of San Antonio.
It was only natural that he and his family eventually made their way back to the Alamo City following his retirement from military service--and the road home led to a position as dean of the Medical School at the Health Science Center.
Twelve years later, as Dr. Young retires from his post as dean, he leaves a legacy of progress in education, research and patient care, and the continued development of the Health Science Center's presence in South Texas.
During Dr. Young's tenure the Medical School has become a nationally recognized leader in research breakthroughs, education of underrepresented minorities and preparation of primary care practitioners. The Medical School has developed strong partnerships with both military and civilian health care centers in San Antonio, fostering cooperative facility enhancements, medical education and research programs.
A native Texan, Dr. Young was born in the Lower Rio Grande Valley at Fort Ringgold, near Rio Grande City. He served in the Army's Medical Department for more than three decades, achieving the grade of Brigadier General and designation as Chief of the Medical Services Corps. Dr. Young's military career included leadership positions in large medical centers, multi-institutional health systems, corporate level medical planning and operations, and military and civilian academic institutions. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Service Medal.
Dr. Young served as Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, West Virginia Board of Regents, before returning to Texas in the fall of 1987 to take the reins as dean of the Health Science Center's School of Allied Health Sciences. In July 1988, he was named interim dean of the Medical School. He became dean of the Medical School in May 1989.
Since his arrival the number of basic science and clinical faculty members has grown from 536 to 752; the Medical School operating budget has risen from $80.9 million to $177.1 million; and research and contract awards to the Health Science Center have increased from $27 million to more than $128 million.
The institution's reputation as a top-notch education and research center has grown as well. The establishment of the multidisciplinary Research Imaging Center placed the Medical School at the forefront of international brain mapping efforts. In 1995 clinical research publications from the Health Science Center ranked ninth among U.S. universities in terms of impact, according to the Institute of Scientific Information. A partnership with the Cancer Therapy and Research Center yielded a Comprehensive Cancer Center--one of only two in Texas to be designated by the National Cancer Institute.
Other accomplishments include revisions to the Medical School curriculum to strengthen medical student training, integrated learning, and student exposure to bioethics and regional health care problems.
Dr. Young's goals also included bringing educational and research opportunities to underserved areas of South Texas. He was one of the driving forces behind the development of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Regional Academic Health Center (RAHC), an education, research and health promotion center along the Texas-Mexico border.
"I would like to see the RAHC develop into an extraordinary educational experience for students located in the Valley," said Dr. Young. "Our hope is to increase the number of new physicians in areas that are currently medically underserved."
Dr. Young credits his faculty and staff with the long list of successful outreach, educational and research programs that have come from the Medical School in the past decade.
"If you empower talented people to do their best, they will achieve," said Dr. Young. "I have enjoyed the past 12 years immensely and the opportunities I have been given to work with such a talented and committed faculty. The School of Medicine and the Health Science Center are a major part of my life and I wish them continued success."
A dozen South Texas sites, including six in Laredo and two in Corpus Christi, will broadcast the upcoming Mini-Medical School--the Health Science Center's free gift to the South Texas community. Zapata, Bruni, Eagle Pass and Falls City are the other distance-learning course sites.

The second session, on April 11, will focus on "The Heart: Health and Repair." This discussion will center on diseases of the heart and innovative treatment approaches coming into use. Presenters will include pediatric heart surgeon Dr. John Calhoon and researcher Dr. Linda Johnson from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
The third session, on April 18, describes "The Brain: A User's Guide." The discussion will concentrate on diseases of the brain and innovative treatment approaches, with presenters including neurobiologist Dr. Terry Mikiten, neurologist Dr. Pamela New and neurosurgeon Dr. Christopher Bogaev.
The final session, on April 25, is called "Living with Illness." Dr. Cervando Martinez will moderate a session in which patients with heart and brain disease will share their accounts of how they have learned to live with their illness. Health professionals who work with chronically ill or terminally ill patients will contribute their perspectives.
The Mini-Medical School is supported in part by an educational grant from Pfizer.
Michael A. Charlton was recently appointed director of the Health Science Center Institutional Safety Office.

Gaining a healthy perspective: Mini-Medical School
In the 1990s movie "The Doctor," a somewhat jaded physician played by William Hurt suddenly learns what it is like to be a patient as he faces his own serious disease: throat cancer. He encounters the fear that he has only seen--and often not appreciated--in patients' eyes. The film illustrates a turning of the tables, the uneasy transition from doctor one day to patient the next, and the heart sculpting of a better doctor who is more sensitive to his patients' situations, feelings and needs.
The doctor-patient relationship is one of many issues to be covered during an upcoming public event at the Health Science Center. In April we will offer our annual gift to the South Texas community, a great educational opportunity that we call the "Mini-Medical School." The four free sessions are from 7 to 9 p.m. on successive Tuesday nights, April 4 to April 25. The first session will introduce various health professionals: doctors, nurses, scientists, dentists and emergency medical technicians. The next two sessions will focus on diseases of the heart and the brain and what can be done to correct the life-threatening or life-altering problems.
Our Mini-Medical School comes full circle on the final night, April 25, when we will focus on living with disease, hearing the perspectives of patients who have come to terms with their own illnesses and the perspectives of physicians who have laughed and cried with these patients. In offering the Mini-Medical School, we wish to turn the tables--to give the public a rare inside look at the often-mystifying world of health care and research.
Why are so many people afraid of doctors or dentists? Why do hospital patients often wonder whether their floor nurses can understand their pain? Why do scientists seem to the public to be locked away in labs, unapproachable for the local Rotary Club lunch or other neighborhood banquet? The answer lies in perceptions, accurate or not, that the public holds of health professionals and scientists.
Scientists and health providers must reach out to the community to foster understanding. The Mini-Medical School will put participants face to face with an esteemed pediatric heart surgeon, a neurosurgeon, a neurologist, a geneticist, a neonatologist, a gastroenterologist, a nurse, a dentist, an emergency rescue professional and more.
True, our event won't answer everyone's questions, but it will help people to understand, specifically, diseases of the heart and brain, as well as today's hottest treatments in those areas. Perhaps more important, it may change perceptions about physicians, researchers, dentists, nurses and emergency medical technicians. Do you hold the perception that EMTs are merely ambulance drivers? Come to the first night of the Mini-Medical School and learn differently. Perhaps you would like to relate better with your own physician or dentist. Or wouldn't it be exhilarating to get a peek at a gene or microorganism and think about presenting a scientific breakthrough? What if, deep down, you have the aptitude to be a new Pasteur or Salk?
The Mini-Medical School is a place to start on a
journey of understanding. We're opening our doors with the hope
that you will come and do just that. For more information or to
register, call us at 7-1925 or visit the Mini-Medical School Web
site at http://minimedschool00.uthscsa.edu.

"No one says the D word anymore," said Cheryl Ross Staats, assistant professor in the Department of Acute Nursing Care. "We talk about 'end of life issues' now instead of death and dying." Part of the reason is that people are being kept alive longer and longer with machines and technology. "People in this country are no longer allowed to die," Staats said.
The D word comes up often in the new multi-school elective Staats developed over the past year. Titled "Interdisciplinary Issues and Approaches to Death and Dying," the course explores the issues surrounding death at both the personal and professional levels. Students examine their own feelings and values about death as they learn about the stages of dying, emotions surging from loss, survivorship, ethics and legal issues, and differing cultural approaches.
Concerned about the lack of formal education for health professionals in death and dying, Staats convened a group of faculty from the Medical School, Dental School and School of Allied Health Sciences to develop the interdisciplinary course. Those actively involved are Dr. Marion Primomo, family practice; Dr. Carolyn Marshall, dental diagnostic science; Alison Beck, occupational therapy; and Tom Turturro, physical therapy.
Faculty participants from the other schools, led by Staats, designed and structured the course content with input from Dr. Nancy Hudepohl, educational development. Staats developed the teaching strategies used in the course. It is a one-hour elective/enrichment course with a credit/no credit grading system. Responses from the first offering of the class, 12 allied health and nursing students, have been very positive, said Staats.
Students are encouraged to share their personal experiences if they wish, and to "maintain their humanity," in Staats' words.
This course is based on a popular three-credit-hour elective that Staats teaches for nursing undergraduates. "I'm getting the word out," she said. "The course has grown over the seven years it's been offered. We have 75 students signed up for this summer."
The nursing course, titled "Contemporary Issues Related to Death and Dying," examines a variety of topics, with an emphasis on personal and professional issues for nurses who will care for people with chronic or acute problems. An approach known as palliative care is introduced. Palliative care deals with the care of the person rather than focusing on the cure. "It's not just about care of people who have been labeled as dying but about those who have been diagnosed with life-altering and life-threatening conditions, such as cancer or congestive heart failure. We don't say you're dying from something, but that you're living with something. You're not dead until you're dead," Staats said.
Staats has always been fascinated with the psychosocial aspects of the human condition. "Students come into the profession of nursing expecting that life will go on. For some it's a very rude awakening to discover that people die. Sometimes young students have no clue or frame of reference for knowing that they, too, will die someday," she said.
Faculty members involved in the interdisciplinary offering are hopeful that class size will increase in coming semesters with participation of dental and medical students. The course is tentatively scheduled in the fall semester for Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m.
Staats has been with the Health Science Center for 11 years. She is a clinical specialist in gerontological nursing and has been practicing since 1973. She has been in nursing education since 1980. She received her bachelor's degree at Alderson-Broaddus College in West Virginia, and her master's degree in adult health nursing from College Misericordia in Pennsylvania. Her most recent publication is a chapter titled "Loss, Death and End of Life Care," in the 1999 textbook Introductory Nursing Care of Adults, 2nd Ed., edited by A. Linton, M. A. Matteson and N. Maebius, and published by W.B. Saunders.
Making the Rounds
The Health Science Center's Institutional Strategic Planning Committee has completed a second draft of revisions to the 1997 Institutional Strategic Plan and is seeking input from the university community.
The committee, chaired by Dr. David Shelledy, respiratory care, has been working since September to update the goals and objectives of the Health Science Center's strategic plan. The strategic plan is a guiding document for directing the efforts and resources of the institution in the years to come.
Faculty and staff are urged to review the second draft of revisions and provide comments and suggestions by April 3. Feedback from the university community will be reviewed by the committee and, where possible, incorporated into the final report and Institutional Strategic Plan. The second draft can be viewed on the university Web site at www.uthscsa.edu/iep/ispdraft2.doc. Comments and suggestions may be sent to Dr. Shelledy at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Dr. Deborah Greene, vice president for institutional effectiveness and planning, at email@example.com..
Once approved by the Health Science Center Executive Committee, the plan will be submitted to The University of Texas System and to the Legislative Budget Board and the Office of the Governor. The next phase will involve the five school-based strategic planning organizations and departments reporting to the vice presidents, who will participate in the development of operational plans to implement the strategic plan.
In addition to Dr. Shelledy, committee members include Dr. Martin Adamo, biochemistry; Dr. Theresa Chiang, student services; Dr. James Freeman, surgery; Dr. Birgit Glass, Dental Dean's Office; Dr. Gary Harris, medicine; Dr. Keith Krolick, microbiology; Dr. Mary MacDougall, Dental Dean's Office; Dr. Toni Miles, family practice; Jack Park, legal affairs and technology licensing; Wayne Reed, business operations and material services; Dr. Charles Rodriguez, public affairs; Dr. Kathleen Stevens, family nursing care; Dr. Janet Williams, pediatrics; and A. Jerome York, vice president and chief information officer.
Finding peace within a violent society will be the topic at the upcoming presentation of the Seminar Series on Health, sponsored by the Health Science Center's School of Nursing and Nursing Advisory Council.
Featured speaker Dr. Margaret Brackley, director of the Center for Violence Prevention and associate professor in the nursing school, will present "Safeguarding Our Families from Violence" on Thursday, April 6, at the San Antonio Country Club.
The seminar runs from 7:45 to 9 a.m. and includes a breakfast buffet. The cost is $20 per person. Those who plan to attend should pre-register by calling 7-5901. Registration deadline is March 31.
Dr. Brackley is a principal investigator and executive director of the San Antonio Safe Family Coalition and is a recognized authority on domestic violence. In San Antonio, the Safe Family Web site provides information on domestic violence, phone numbers of shelters and links to other helpful sites. The address is http://www.ci.sat.tx.us/sapd/SAFamily.htm .
"We need to create a community that is concerned with the safety of all its citizens, even the most vulnerable. Family violence spills over into the community and affects all of our families. In everything we say and do, peace starts with each of us," Dr. Brackley said.
