Nacogdoches Physician Retains TMA Council Post

A Nacogdoches physician has accepted a leadership position within the Texas Medical Association (TMA). TMA physicians and medical students who are appointed or elected to one of TMA’s 30 boards, councils, and committees are responsible for studying and recommending action on important issues affecting Texas patients and health care policy.

Kathryn M. Lewis, MD, a radiation oncologist in practice for 23 years, was reelected to TMA’s Council on Health Promotion. The council plans and oversees programs that enable TMA, the TMA Alliance (a volunteer organization of TMA physicians and spouses), and the TMA Foundation (TMA’s philanthropic arm) to improve the health of all Texans. Dr. Lewis is a member of the Nacogdoches County Medical Society.

TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing nearly 46,000 physician and medical student members. It is located in Austin and has 120 component county medical societies around the state. TMA’s key objective since 1853 is to improve the health of all Texans.
