Comments and Reflections

I joined TCEP as a young physician as soon as I moved back to Texas in 1999. Being a part of a professional organization is very important to me as it lends credibility to what we do and allows the individual and the group to grow in unique ways and to accomplish goals as a united front that may otherwise not be possible. For example, in 2009, when the Texas legislation was in session and I was President of the organization, our physicians attended every First Tuesday to lobby the legislators regarding tort reform. The advances we made that year allowed wonderful protection for emergency physicians statewide as well as expanded access to all our state's patients. Seventy eight neurosurgeons came to Texas to build practices, as well as countless OB Gyns. This protection still exists today and continues to benefit patients everywhere. I cannot encourage participation enough nor reiterate all of the benefits of education and collaboration you will reap when you join a progressive group like this one. I have been honored to be associated with such an amazing group of colleagues.
