TSA President Dr. Crystal Wright
It is an honor for me to close this meeting with you all this evening. You are on the frontlines of this pandemic and have been for over 18 months. Thank you for your commitment to the patients that rely on our provision of care for them. Thank you for also being here tonight. It goes without saying that stepping up to the plate and engaging in organized medicine even in the most difficult of times is a true testament to the passion you all have for our specialty. Your presence and service to this organization is what makes the practice of Anesthesiology one of the safest specialties in medicine.

TSA Past President Dr. David Bryant
We are in unique times as we are amid the Covid-19 pandemic. The very fabric of practice in Texas was disrupted. We have had many challenges in the past year.
