April President’s Message
Spring has sprung, and with it the lovely storms we expect this time of year. I hope everyone enjoyed last month’s discussion on IMHA and diabetes. Two diseases we see weekly, if not daily. I really appreciate Dr. Pickens and Dr. Rogers taking time out of their busy week to present to our members.
This month, we welcome internists from the Veterinary Specialists of North Texas. Dr. Burney and his group have rapidly become the primary internal medicine referral for Fort Worth and I, for one, appreciate their expertise and willingness to help with all of those frustrating and challenging internal medicine cases and oncology. Dr. Allison Wilson and Dr. Samantha Bailey will be speaking about liver disease and specifically about the dreaded ALP elevation. Dr. Wilson is an LSU graduate. After vet school, she completed a 1 year rotating internship followed by a 1 year internal medicine specialty internship followed by an internal medicine residency at Oklahoma State University. Dr. Bailey is also an LSU graduate. She completed a 1 year rotating internship after vet school followed by an internal medicine residency at Oklahoma State University. We also welcome Dr. Michelle LaRue this month. She will be speaking about one of the most common cancers we see in general practice, mast cell tumors. Dr. LaRue is a graduate of Texas A&M University. She subsequently completed an internship and Auburn followed by an oncology internship at LSU. Dr. LaRue then returned to Auburn to complete an oncology residency and master’s degree. This month’s presentations are sponsored by VSNT. I look forward to the presentations and appreciate all of the internists for taking the time to come speak with our members about liver disease and mast cell tumors.
Remember, if you have not yet joined the TCVMA this year, there is still time for you to join and receive all of the needed CE for the year. We still have 17.5 hours of CE provided for the remainder of the year. Future topics include brachycephalic surgery and dermatology and ophthalmology among others. I hope to see all of you there on April 20.
