The Texas A&M College of Medicine chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS) is honored to announce that the new annual speaker series on humanism and compassion in medicine has been officially named The Pete & Erin Huttlinger Series on Humanities in Medicine.

Huttlinger, who was the inaugural speaker for the series in November 2015, was an accomplished guitarist who released albums such as Fingerpicking Wonder: The Music Of Stevie Wonder and Things Are Looking Up. His presentation, titled “Don’t Just Live, Live Well,” was an inspiring exploration of how Pete and his wife, Erin Huttlinger, strived together to live a life of resiliency as they faced years of life threatening complications from his congenital health problems.

Huttlinger experienced a major stroke in November 2010 that left him temporarily paralyzed on his right side and without speech. Just four months later he experienced end-stage heart failure resulting in the implantation of a Ventricular Assist Device (VAD). Through determination, love and laughter, Huttlinger was able to relearn to play guitar and resume a rigorous touring and recording schedule and even walk a half-marathon just 12 months later. He died from a stroke on Jan. 15.
