Dr. Smith Named President of Upstate Medical University

It's official. Dr. David Smith is the new president of Upstate Medical University in New York. On Tuesday, university trustees unanimously approved Dr. Smith's nomination. The news comes six months after Smith stepped down as chancellor at Texas Tech. Tuesday, Dr. Smith said, "I am looking forward to leading Upstate Medical Center toward future accomplishment and advancement. Central New York is a wonderful place to live and work, and my wife and I have roots there." Dr. Smith and his wife Dr. Donna Bacchi first met in that area. 

For several years, you watched him on NewsChannel 11 every Sunday night. What you may not know is that segment started here and later became syndicated. So, eventually his message from the Texas Tech medical school was seen weekly in more than 20 different cities.
