TMA wishes to safeguard the health of our members, their families and staff, and the community at large. TMA strongly supports and recommends a COVID-19 vaccination for health care workers and all Texans eligible to receive it.
All conference registrants - and those traveling with them - are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are not feeling well, please do not travel to the conference.
Omni’s Safe and Clean program actively monitors and updates solutions to maintain adherence with local government requirements. Please bring a mask for use in public areas or where adequate physical distancing cannot be maintained. Disposable masks also will be available at the registration desk.
The TMA Advocacy Retreat will provide TMA members and state specialty societies with a recap of the 87th Texas Legislative Session and a platform to discuss the future of Texas health care.
