Medical summit visits East Texas

By Morgan Chesky - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Doctors from East Texas came together Saturday to hear medical experts from across the country speak on improving current treatments.  The one day course gave doctors a chance to discuss commonly encountered issues in internal medicine.

Representatives demonstrated new and improved tools and methods to area doctors, updating traditional practices.  John Moore with Trinity Mother Frances says the doctors won't be the only ones benefiting from the conference.

"Ultimately the patients here in East Texas are going to benefit from this event," said Moore.  "This is an event that is normally held in cities like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, so to have it here is an honor not only for Trinity Mother Francis, but ultimately every physician locally who's attending today will learn new things that they can in turn help treat their patients with."  Open to surgeons, nurses, and other types of doctors the conference concluded late this afternoon with a panel discussion.
