    TSA President Dr. Crystal Wright

    Happy New Year and Warmest Greetings as we begin 2022!

    As we embark upon this new year, I know the challenges of the past year are still among us. As a medical community, we find ourselves with a continued threat of COVID 19, as the Omicron variant causes abrupt shifts and increased hospitalizations, during an already high patient volume season for many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as we continue to provide the highest quality patient care during this time of uncertainty, despite the challenges.
