An Eagle Pass physician has accepted a new leadership position within the Texas Medical Association (TMA). TMA physicians and medical students who are appointed or elected to one of TMA’s 30 boards, councils, and committees are responsible for studying and recommending action on important issues affecting Texas patients and health care policy.

Hector Trevino, MD, a family physician in practice for 21 years, was appointed to TMA’s Committee on Physician Distribution and Health Care Access. The committee analyzes the physician, nursing, and allied health workforce and its impact on patients’ ability to receive health care, and promotes careers in medicine and the health professions. Dr. Trevino is a member of the Maverick County Medical Society.

TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing nearly 46,000 physician and medical student members. It is located in Austin and has 120 component county medical societies around the state. TMA’s key objective since 1853 is to improve the health of all Texans.
