    • Hard Hats for Little Heads
      The Texas Medical Association’s Hard Hats for Little Head bicycle helmet giveaway program was created to help reduce head injury among Texas children.

Hard Hats for Little Heads promotes fun exercise, and teaches parents and children the importance of wearing a properly fitted helmet. Hard Hats for Little Heads is made possible through a grant from the TMA Foundation thanks to top donors — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Prudential, and two anonymous foundations — and gifts from physicians and their families
