A Judson physician has been reappointed to a leadership position with 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.
Louis J. Kirk III, MD, an OB-Gyn for 34 years, was reappointed to TMA’s Committee on Maternal and Perinatal Health. The committee reviews laws, regulations, and activities that affect the health of newborn babies and their mothers.
Dr. Kirk is a member of the Gregg-Upshur County Medical Society.
