Gulf Coast Chapter 
Message From Your President

Happy New Year!  

Welcome to a new year, new decade, and new horizons. My name is Joshua Dufresne, and I am the TEHA Gulf Coast Chapter president for 2019-2020.  

In November, we had a successful, if rain-laden, Winter Conference in Baytown, where we heard from representatives from the Texas Department of State Health Services, Harris County Public Health, Houston Health Department about issues that will affect our profession in the new year with all of the new legislation that went into effect September 1 statewide. We are planning a Spring conference to take place within the next few months that will hopefully provide a good deal of interesting information. More information will be coming shortly, but we hope to see you there!  

Finally, if anyone has suggestions for people or topics that you would like to hear about, please feel free to share them with myself or any of the other chapter leaders.


Very respectfully,
