  • Opportunity in Adversity – TMAF 2020 Annual Report

We did it together. Lives were saved. Children protected. Wellness activities provided to stressed and burned-out TMA member physicians. Excellence in science teaching celebrated and rewarded. Medical and nursing students supported in their training. And more.
