The Texas Delegation to the AMA is a determined, driven bunch, dedicated to propose and pass legislation to help their colleagues improve the health of all Texans — and Americans. One example in this video is their work to end a Medicare crisis and improving those patients' access to physicians' care. Texas Delegation Chair David N. Henkes, MD, and several other physicians in the group, all describe the work of the delegation and the pride they share in serving Texans in the national organization.
A pair of Texas physicians won reelection to their American Medical Association (AMA) leadership posts Tuesday, continuing a strong showing by the Texans at the 2018 annual meeting of the AMA House of Delegates here.
The American Medical Association Board of Trustees approved the appointment of three TMA leaders to key American Medical Association posts.
