  • From the President
    A Message from Angela Donahue, Fort Worth

    I am honored to be the 97th president of the Texas Medical Association Alliance.  In 2018, the Alliance will celebrate 100 years of service to medicine and the medical family. I look forward to adding my name to the long list of leaders who have made a difference in the health of Texans through our political activism and community health outreach programs on behalf of medicine. 

    While our success with promoting TMA’s legislative and political action agenda is legendary, we are also proud of a long heritage of working to help TMA with its mission of “Improving the Health of All Texans.”  Alliance members serve on many TMA councils and committees and we’re gratified that our involvement with the Council on Health Promotion gives us an opportunity to collaborate with TMA and TMA Foundation when deciding how best to channel medicine’s energies in the public health arena.  Hard Hats for Little Heads celebrates its 20th year of providing potentially life-saving helmets to Texas children this year. The Alliance is committed to helping reach the goal of giving away the 200,000th helmet in 2014!

    Very soon, the Alliance will begin work on planning and promoting the 2015 rendition of First Tuesdays at the Capitol. Starting next February 3, Alliance members and physicians will descend on the Capitol to take medicine’s message to our state legislators.  And you are cordially invited to join us!  Mark your calendars now for February 3, March 3, April 7, and May 5.  Your presence is very much needed if we are to protect the practice of medicine and defend the patient/physician relationship.

    As I travel our state during the coming year, I will strive to represent the family of medicine with a welcoming attitude, a positive outlook, and an encouraging call to become involved in our organizations.  

    It will be my pleasure to join TMA’s 2014-15 President Austin King, MD, a distinguished leader with a long career of service to medicine, as we lead our respective organizations.  I am excited and optimistic that together, we can make a difference as we work in partnership to improve the health of all Texans.
