UTMB presents the Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club Archive

Our audience spoke, we listened. In May 2012, we began hosting The Breakfast Club, an early morning session to share interesting and relevant health information and tips. You told us lunchtime would be more convenient and easier to squeeze in your busy day, so we've adjusted accordingly.

Starting March 5, the Breakfast Club will become the Lunch Bunch. Watch for more captivating topics from great speakers, a free light lunch, hosted during the lunch hour once every other month.   

Beginning in May, the Lunch Bunch will meet the second Tuesday of every other month from Noon to 1:00 p.m. All sessions are free and hosted at the Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes.
