In terms of advocacy, the Texas legislature is currently in session (which happens every two years). With the help of the TMA and our lobbyist, we continue to advocate for pathology and our patients by attending “First Tuesday” events at the Capital in Austin. I would encourage you to get involved in these events to make sure our voice is heard!
Please save the date for our next two gatherings: The Young Pathologist Section meeting on August 25-27 at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort
and the 2024 TSP meeting on February 2-4 (location TBD).
As a second-generation Texas pathologist, I recognize the value of our rich history and look forward to drawing from our past to help us grow our future. On behalf of the TSP Board, I thank you for your membership, your commitment to advancing our specialty, and everything you do to deliver excellent patient care. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you in your work.
