Donations to TMAF Improve Health

Thousands of Texans will be safer and healthier in 2011 thanks to physicians, their families, and institutions that have donated to the TMA Foundation (TMAF). Their generosity is reflected in more than $230,000 in grants to TMA's award- winning Hard Hats for Little Heads and Be Wise — Immunize programs, as well as the Minority Scholarship Program, the Ernest and Sarah Butler Awards in Excellence in Science Teaching,and the Physician Oncology Education Program. 

Top institutional gifts from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, H-E-B, and Prudential and a grant from an anonymous foundation are the key to ensuring that these flagship programs continue to help Texans take preventive steps and greater responsibility for their health.  

There are many ways to get involved with these TMAF-supported programs. TMA and TMA Alliance members can bring a Hard Hats or Be Wise event to their community. Most of these programs include free physician and patient educational materials. 

For more information about these programs and how to support them, visit the TMAF webpage or call TMAF at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1664, or (512) 370-1664.
