  • From the President
    A Message from Cheryl Jones, Temple

    Thank you for the honor of serving as TMAA's 96th president. These are interesting times for medicine. As physicians navigate the precarious environment of practicing medicine today, it is incumbent upon all of us - physicians, alliance members, and medical students – to step up to the plate and do our part to keep the practice of medicine strong and secure for the patients of Texas. 

    The medical family shares many of the same stresses and challenges in today’s society that every other family faces. What distinguishes us from others is the fact that our physicians are on the front lines providing care to sick, injured, and dying patients. It is a noble profession, one that merits our admiration and our protection.  

    When TMAA was founded in 1918, its focus was social. As the organization has grown, it became much more than that. TMAA members quickly became involved in public health outreach by helping educate the public about tuberculosis and polio. Later, we began working for a Drug-Free America and promoting organ donation. We are now engaged in outreach efforts to ensure greater immunization rates through the Be Wise—ImmunizeSM program and to provide helmets to Texas children through TMA’s Hard Hats for Little Heads campaign. 

    Of course, the alliance is also heavily involved in TMA’s legislative and political advocacy endeavors. We block walk and volunteer in political campaigns to elect medicine-friendly candidates. Some of us run for political office ourselves! 

    It will be an honor to join TMA's 2013-2014 President, Steve Brotherton, MD, as we lead our respective organizations. My medical family, in both the very personal and in the broader sense, is my priority, and I pledge to do my best to serve our alliance and TMA during the coming year.
