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.
As we near the end of 2015 and look forward to 2016, we have many excited changes on the horizon for the TACSM membership. Due to our outstanding success in previous years, the TACSM Board of Directors has decided to increase the amount of funding for both MS and Doctoral SRDA Awards and establish monitary awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Poster Award Finishers at the Annual Meeting. Also, new for 2016 is that ACSM will support travel for the TACSM President's Cup winner to attend the 2016 ACSM Annual Meeting in Boston and represent TACSM. More details on these new programs will be coming in the next few months.
If you have not done so already, 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 Distinguished Lecture 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.
