Husband and wife physicians from Longview have been selected for leadership positions in the Texas Medical Association (TMA). TMA held elections and appointments in conjunction with its TexMed conference and expo, held this year in Houston. The physicians begin their term of service at TMA’s Fall Conference in September.
