“This is our mission — this is what we do each and every day,” said Pullin. “Our goal is to inspire and educate children and adults about their bodies and their health in a unique fashion. Since this Museum was founded in 1996, the Texas Medical Center and its constituency have supported our efforts to be a vehicle through which some of the world’s finest health institutions can educate families on health, wellness and the science of life and taking care of themselves. When we began discussions months ago with Premier Exhibitions to bring Bodies … The Exhibition to Houston, our Board of Directors, which is largely comprised of leading Texas Medical Center executives and professionals, expressed a strong interest in this exhibition.”

The Museum’s Board of Directors includes such health system leaders as University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Executive Vice President for External Affairs, Dr. Carlos Hamilton, Jr., who is also the Museum’s incoming Board President.

Dr. Hamilton remarked, “This museum already represents a national model for health and medical science museums, and it is one of the few institutions in the country focused solely on quality health education for the general public. As longtime partners with the Museum, we are delighted that this intriguing exhibition, which provides a unique and educational perspective on the inner workings of the human body, will be showcased in an environment that has nurtured health education from its inception.”

The Harris County Medical Society also served as a catalyst for this step in the Museum’s history. President Robert C. Vanzant, M.D. extended his support and cooperation for the new exhibition and expansion.

“The Harris County Medical Society has long enjoyed a collaborative relationship with the Museum, and we know that this step in the Museum’s history will strengthen its ability to benefit our community and support the medical profession. We offer our congratulations and advocacy,” said Dr. Vanzant in recent correspondence.

According to Dr. Roy Glover, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Michigan, and the Chief Medical Director and spokesman for BODIES … The Exhibition, “Seeing promotes understanding and understanding promotes the most practical kind of body education possible.”
