Each year, the foundation helps support TMA’s Physician Oncology Education Program (POEP) which educates primary care physicians in the early detection and prevention of cancer. Now in its’ 24th year, POEP has established a new program that is providing a systematic approach for physicians to counsel their patients, review and monitor compliance and make affordable treatments available to those fighting their addiction to tobacco. It includes a new tool—a free podcast aimed at helping patients to quit smoking and educating physicians about reimbursement for tobacco cessation services.
Since 1998, preventing disease and injury has been the focus of the foundation’s community grant programs. Each year, TMAF invites TMA’s county medical societies (CMS) and alliance and medical student chapters to apply for a grant in support of their local health improvement initiatives.
