Odessa-area physician Richard Bartlett, MD, takes his skills overseas to help those facing war and poverty
You’re a physician, so you and I both know you do plenty of good work for the people of Texas.
But here at the Texas Medical Association, we know you also do plenty of good work outside of your practice, and we’d like to highlight that work to your colleagues.
Do you do missionary work here in the United States or somewhere abroad?
Do you volunteer at a local nonprofit or other service such as Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, or the Red Cross?
Do you offer medical services at events such as rodeos, high school sports, or marathons?
Did you help rescue a cat from a neighbor’s tree?
Whatever good you’ve done this year, tell us about it, and we’ll tell readers of Texas Medicine magazine.
If you’re an avid reader of the magazine (like I know you are), you might’ve noticed a photo spread each month called “Imaging.”
Since the beginning of the year, that section has featured an assortment of stories told with photos: one of your colleagues testifying before state lawmakers, Texas Medicine covers featuring female physicians, and statewide events such as Hard Hats for Little Heads and Texas Two Step CPR, just to name a few.
For our December edition, we’d like to show off you and all the good things you’ve done.
It should be simple for you. Just send a photo (or a few!) to me at david.doolittle[at]texmed[dot]org and include a short description of what’s going on in the photo and the work that you do.
If your photos are chosen, you’ll be immortalized in the pages of the magazine of the greatest medical society in the nation. Now wouldn’t that be great!
So from all of us here at TMA, thank you for everything you do.
