The Texas Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Students, held in conjunction with the C. Frank Webber Lectureship and Interim Session, drew a total of 24 residents and 54 med students. Participants received a warm welcome from TAFP President, Tricia Elliott, MD, learned more about challenges facing those living on the border of Texas from Adrian Billings, MD, and received a legislative update from our very own CEO, Tom Banning.

In addition to timely discussions and presentations, the Section on Residents and the Section on Medical Students met and held elections for various officer positions. Officer candidates had the chance to talk to their colleagues about their professional passions and how they would represent the resident and student TAFP members within the Academy.
