South Texas Chapter
South Texas Governing Council News

 South Padre Island on December 5th, 6th and 7th, 2018.  We plan to have lots of prizes, raffle items, a comedy show with “Happy the Comedian” an our Inspirational Speaker for all attendees to enjoy. Many memories will be made just a week and a half after Thanksgiving and three weeks before Christmas. It is always amazing to see so many TEHA members of different communities come together and have a blast, while obtaining their state required continuing education units. The idea of networking with others in the same field was extremely evident this year. This is going to be one for the books and I guarantee you don’t want to miss this one!!!


We have been very fortunate to have such great success with our trainings and conferences. Last year we decided to start a tradition to solicit Christmas Gifts that would be delivered to the Children’s Hospital by the TEHA-STC Board. 


Furthermore, we also began the “TEHA-TSC President Giveback” where the TEHA-STC President will get to choose a nonprofit organization to invite to the conference each December. As a result, TEHA-STC President Edgar Cruz chose a nonprofit that he has been a part of for many years. His goddaughter, Lily Lopez, was a recipient of this wonderful nonprofit. Although she past away, the studies she voluntarily agreed to have on her will benefit many future patients, that will be able to enjoy their lives because of her noble efforts. More information on Lily Lopez may be found at also wants to thank everyone that signed up for the “Be The Match: The National Marrow Donor Program” (, a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to helping every patient get the life-saving transplant they need.


Please contact me if you would like information on the J. Victor Baldovinos Scholarship which covers the Conference Registration, or if you are interested in being a speaker. As an added bonus, you will get free CEUs for the day you speak.
