TMAF funded projects are selected on their ability to target urgent health needs affecting a large segment of the state's residents with results that can be measured. Projects often involve public-private partnerships, which maximize the effectiveness of programs and enable efforts to be tailored to meet local needs.
Since 1994, TMA Foundation has granted more than $8.2 million to award-winning, physician-driven initiatives.
