10A.M. - Noon

We will carpool to the Houston Medical Center for a tour of the Texas Heart Institute's, Wallace D. Wilson Museum. 

The museum is inside the Denton A. Cooley Building of the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital at 6770 Bertner Ave.  It spotlights Denton Cooley, a pioneer in heart surgery, along with eclectic heart art in the Celebration of Hearts exhibit. We'll see early and current cardiac and surgical instruments, artificial hearts and other neat stuff. 

After our tour we will go to the surgical observation deck.  If a heart transplant surgery is scheduled, most likely we will be invited to observe.

Then we head to The Stem Cell Center. Here we will view the "ghost organs" and see the vaults where the stem cells are stored.

Lunch will follow at Prima Pasta Restaurant (713-6664047), 6811 Kirby @ Holcombe just 10 minutes away. 

Space is limited.  Sign up if you are real sure you want to go.  Please indicate if you have a guest you are interested in bringing. We'll need to see how many members sign up first and then see if there will be room for guests.  We will be carpooling for this trip. The Museum is free, but there is around an $8 parking fee. If you have a small portable stool or chair, you may want to bring it, along with a jacket. 

More details will be emailed the end of January to those who have signed up.
