TCMS/AISD Athletic Physicals

Each year, TCMS has partnered with AISD to provide underinsured student athletes with the physicals they need to play sports, march in band, and cheer in school.
Physicians, nurses, and physician assistants are needed for each of the following nights in May all at the Burger Center. 
Tuesday, May 17 | Burger Center (MOPAC & Hwy 290)
Wednesday, May 18 | Burger Center (MOPAC & Hwy 290)
Thursday, May 19 | Burger Center (MOPAC & Hwy 290)
Note: GU/hernia exams on boys will NOT be included this year based on current recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Jill Snyder, 1942-2022
We are saddened by the loss of longtime TCMS colleague Jill Snyder, PhD. She passed away on Sunday, April 17 after a short battle with cancer. Snyder developed and taught the Spanish MeducationĀ® classes offered to physicians and their office staff. Both her dynamic personality and her classes will be greatly missed.
