To the members of the Texas College of Emergency Physicians,

El Paso is a Texas city that rests on the edge of our state and often times, just on the edge of our individual consciousness. Home to our state's oldest civilian emergency medicine training program, El Paso has trained countless EM physicians, myself included.

Texas stands with its emergency medicine family in El Paso as they do their job under unimaginable circumstances. Godspeed El Paso - you are in the hearts and minds of Texas, our nation and the world.

Hemant Vankawala MD FACEP
President, Texas College of Emergency Physicians

Our Board will be meeting in El Paso July 20 and 21st and we have a lot to discuss.

They worked hard to protect our profession and they did an outstanding job...
