    Memorial Gifts Support Medical Student Community GrantsYou may designate your TMAF donation to any of a number of programs that are funded by the foundation. And that’s just what ten individuals and institutions did when they designated their gifts in memory of Dr. Timothy E. Drake for the TMAF Medical Student Community Leadership Grant (MSCLG) program. Their donations honor his love of teaching and how he helped “his patients better understand their health and how to properly care for their futures through quality care,” said his wife, Bobbie Drake of Plano. Dr. Drake was a family physician at The Medical Center of Plano where he was chief of the family medicine department and held numerous leadership positions. Learn more about Dr. Drake and his legacy through the MCSLG Program.
