• TMAF Funded Programs

    • Turning Good Ideas Into Better Health

      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. 

      Funded initiatives focus on the public health and science priorities of TMA: health promotion and disease prevention; targeted public health issues; science-based clinical decision making; public health advocacy and resources; scientific information; and border health. Proposals come from TMA, its component societies, or are submitted jointly for projects done in cooperation with outside organizations. Click on “Read More” in this section to learn about the five major TMA programs supported by the foundation.
