UT Heath Center Hosts Conference

The goal:  Providing East Texans more access to healthcare. The University of Texas Health Center sponsored a conference Saturday  that hopes to accomplish just that. Local medical professionals were all invited to attend the annual event. This year's keynote speaker was Texas's new Commissioner of Health, Dr. Eduardo Sanchez. Sanchez told the group an aging population and a boom in babies over the last few years has changed priorities in healthcare. Local business leaders were also invited to attended today. Organizers hope the discussion's will help East Texas keep up with changes in healthcare.
