The Odessa Chamber of Commerce recently gave a big West Texas welcome to Third-year medical students entering Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at the Permian Basin School of Medicine on Tuesday, July 2nd.

This event is an annual reception put on by the Odessa Chamber of Commerce and presented by Medical Center Health System.

More than 100 attendees joined together at the Chamber offices to welcome these students into the community.

With a growing population, the Permian Basin needs more doctors, and it is the hope of the Odessa Chamber of Commerce that these talented young transplants will make Odessa their permanent home.
