Good morning TPC! We are excited to launch the TPC Doctor's Lounge where we can come together and have conversations on a platform created by doctors and owned by us -- TPC! Every time we create content and posts on social media we are giving away our intellectual property and ownership to big tech companies. Now, we have the opportunity to come together and own our content and data. Join TPC today and let's work together and create solutions that work for us! - TPC Board Member
