The call for you to nominate and recognize and say thanks to a colleague, friend, mentor, or mentee that has served and continues to serve as an advocate for children and the profession of pediatrics is open.  Please take the time to help TPS identify and acknowledge those who strive to keep children safe, happy, and healthy.

Your testimony and recommendation are important, as we may not be aware of all the work being done for Texas children.   Award winners will be honored at the TPS Annual Meeting Awards and Business Meeting scheduled for Saturday, September 30. Details to follow.
