Chevron & Texas Children's Hospital presents “Through The Lens”
Chevron presents “Through The Lens” benefiting the ongoing work of the Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatric AIDS Initiative at Texas Children’s Hospital. Guests will see a unique, specially-curated exhibit featuring the work of Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Smiley Pool.
In 1996, Dr. Mark W. Kline, now physician-in-chief at Texas Children’s, made a trip to Romania that changed his life - and subsequently the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and women. He saw children ravaged by HIV/AIDS, waiting to die because they didn’t have access to the life-saving medication that was readily available in the United States. He developed a plan to change all that, sketched it out on a napkin on his return flight, and established what would later become BIPAI at Texas Children’s. BIPAI is now one of the largest global maternal and child health programs in the world.
