100 years ago, a group of pediatricians met in Dallas and formed the Texas Pediatric Society @TXPeds. Today we are the largest chapter of the @AmerAcadPeds. I’m honored to serve with amazing pediatricians across our state who speak up for kids. Happy 100th anniversary to TPS!

I am proud to carry HB 2822, which removes prior-authorization requirements for Medicaid patients to receive physician-prescribed antipsychotics. This ensures that patients can quickly obtain essential meds to avoid potential mental health episodes. https://t.co/Rjxiq6OQfZ
Great day at the #Texas capitol with my @MEDNAX @TXPeds @texmed colleague Dr. Nedrelow asking @TexasHouse to improve access to care for kids 0-3yo on Medicaid. Access = decreased ER visits+hospital admissions = saves $$ and pays for itself! https://t.co/5n4JvNpiKL
