TSA President's Acceptance Speech
by Tim Bittenbinder, M.D., TSA President
It is with humility and tremendous gratitude that I find myself standing here to start a year as your TSA President. This moment would not be possible without the support, guidance, and TOLERANCE of many in this room. Special thanks to many of you!This state society is the envy of the rest of the country’s state societies of Anesthesiology. That is because of you, our members….and the stewardship of those that came before me. People like Jim Arens, Jimmy McMichael, Warner Ahlgren, Scott Kercheville, Till Hein and many others have helped shape my interest in organized medicine. They helped me understand that not serving is no option, if you care about the work you do. Thank you! Read More
