The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs participates in the Livelihood – Roots for Change tree planting event at Bayou Bend Park, Jan. 8. Leslie Beckman and Yasmin Chebaro, PhD, sponsored a tree in honor of all UTHealth Houston postdocs and as a living tribute to love ones lost as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the rainy weather, Beckman, Chebaro, Dr. Suravi Majumder and Dr. Manuela Ochoa-Urrea joined nearly 40 volunteers to plant over 400 trees.
