Renowned pathologist to visit UTHSCT to discuss how experts in this field can help physicians, other health care providers

Friday, April 9, 2010

Stanley Robboy, MD, president-elect of the College of American Pathologists, will present “Q&A: How Can the Pathologist Better Help the Clinician?” at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, April 15, in Hudnall Auditorium on the campus of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, 11937 U.S. Highway 271.

Pathology is the branch of medicine that explores the nature and cause of disease. It also involves the study of changes that occur in the body as a result of disease.

Dr. Robboy is visiting UT Health Science Center at the invitation of Tim Allen, MD, professor and chairman of UTHSCT’s Department of Pathology.

Dr. Robboy is vice chairman of the Department of Pathology and chief of diagnostic pathology at Duke University.

He is a Fellow of the College of American Pathologists and has been an associate professor at Harvard Medical School, chairman of the Pathology Department at the New Jersey Medical School, and trustee of the American Pathology Foundation.

At UTHSCT, Dr. Robboy’s presentation will be an informal question-and-answer session designed to update physicians and other health care providers about how pathologists can help them diagnose and treat patients.
