Children who get a healthy start in life can expect to develop into healthy adults, and to accomplish that, Blackmon and the rest of the pediatric doctors in Irving make sure to give each and every child the care that they deserve.
Margaret began her career by attending Texas A&M University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology as well as a minor in Chemistry. After graduating from Texas A&M, Blackmon continued her studies at Texas Woman’s University in Houston, where she received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing.
