For 50 years, the Physicians Benevolent Fund has helped medical family members in need. The late May Owen, MD, a Fort Worth pathologist and past TMA president, established the fund in 1961 with a $2,500 donation to assist destitute doctors and their families.
The PHR Assistance Fund helps physicians in need. It provides financial assistance to physicians who cannot afford treatment for depression, Substance Use Disorders, or other problems, or whose families need help with short-term living expenses while a physician receives treatment. If you or someone you know needs assistance, call the 24-hour hotline at (800) 880-1640. For additional information, contact Linda Kuhn at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1342, or (512) 370-1342, or email Linda Kuhn.
