Welcome to the website for the Texas Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine (TACSM). TACSM is dedicated to advancing the fields of Exercise Science, Health, and Sports Medicine in the State of Texas.
We look forward to the start of a productive 2015-2016 academic year. This will be an exciting year for TACSM. Please Mark March 2nd to the 4th of 2016 on your calendar. The TACSM annual meeting will officially be held on March 3rd and 4th; however, this year we have the exciting opportunity to partner with the Texas A&M Huffines Sports Medicine Speaker Series. Starting on March 2nd, Texas A&M brings top Sports Medicine professionals from around the country to speak at an annual event. Your registration for TACSM will get you into both events this year. Dr. Jim Fluckey and the TACSM program committee are hard at work putting together a top tier science program for this years meeting. There will be new opportunities to network with other scientists from across the State of Texas.
Another exciting edition this year will be TACSM’s participation in the ACSM President’s Cup. At the TACSM Annual Meeting one graduate student who is deemed to have the top presentation will be given $1,200 to travel to the 2016 ACSM Annual Meeting in Boston and compete against student finalists from other ACSM regional chapters for the 2016 ACSM President’s Cup Award. This is a brand new ACSM event/award was developed and proposed by TACSM members Drs. Jim Fluckey and David Ferguson. Join us in March to support the TACSM President’s Cup representative.
