The Clinics Meet the Classroom
For more than 14 years, Texas Tech Physicians has visited local school districts as an outreach effort to help support area teachers and students. Texas Tech Physicians leadership and administration visits with school teachers and administration each year to:
- Thank them for their efforts in teaching our area youth
- Offer resources to them as fellow educators (field trips, speakers, etc.)
- Encourage teachers to seek their health care from one of our providers for themselves, their families, and any students/parents who might seek advice about an issue with which we can help
“It is an opportunity for us to get in front of approximately 1,000 individuals and speak to them about Texas Tech Physicians,” said Matt Driskill, MBA, FACMPE, Senior Clinical Department Administrator for the Department of Surgery.
These outreach efforts have been rewarded over the years. Texas Tech Physicians clinics have strong relationships with LISD, Cooper and Frenship school districts. Each year the clinics also rotate to the smaller school district and visit schools outside of Lubobck. This year clinical administration will visit Idalou school district.
Providing local teachers additional resources and support for each school year has been an invaluable aspect of Texas Tech Physicians’ outreach efforts in the community.
