Five New Members Take Their Place on the TMAF Board

Three new members — including one resident, a PhD, and one medical student — were named to the TMA Foundation (TMAF) Board of Trustees during the TMA Fall Conference in September.

The new members who began their first three-year terms are: 

  • Raymond Moss Hampton, MD, a Midland board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist in practice for 33 years. Dr. Hampton also is a professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center of the Permian Basin;
  • Carla F. Ortique, MD, a Houston obstetrician-gynecologist, who cares for patients at Women's Specialists of Houston at Texas Children's Hospital. She also is a clinical instructor in the Department of Obstetrics-Gynecology at Baylor College of Medicine; and
  • Steven H. Kelder, PhD, of Austin, a professor in the Division of Epidemiology, Human Genetics, at The University of Texas School of Public Health and associate dean of the Austin campus.

Meanwhile, two special representatives began one-year terms: 

  • Arindam Sarkar, MD, Houston, a physician in residency at Baylor College of Medicine, is the Resident and Fellow Section representative; and 
  • Sinan Ali Bana, Sugar Land, a third-year medical student at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, will represent the Medical Student Section. 

TMAF, the philanthropic arm of TMA, raises funds to support the population health, science, and quality-of-care priority initiatives of the association and the Family of Medicine. TMAF connects medicine, business, and community groups that carry out these programs at the local and state levels.
