May 19, 2018

Three Dallas/Fort Worth physicians were reelected today to represent Texas doctors in the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates, the national organization’s policymaking body. The Texas Medical Association (TMA) House of Delegates elected the physician leaders in San Antonio during TexMed, TMA’s annual conference.

Gregory M. Fuller, MD, a Keller family physician in practice for 28 years, was reelected to serve as an AMA delegate.

Larry E. Reaves, MD, a Fort Worth plastic surgeon in practice for 35 years, was reelected to serve as an AMA delegate.  

Leslie H. Secrest, MD, a Dallas psychiatrist in practice for 46 years, was reelected to serve as an AMA delegate.

As part of the TMA state delegation to AMA, these physicians help make policy recommendations to the national body on behalf of Texas doctors.

Dr. Reaves and Dr. Fuller are members of the Tarrant County Medical Society, and Dr. Secrest is a member of the Dallas County Medical Society. Each physician has served as the president of his respective county medical society, among other offices in TMA and organized medicine.

TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing more than 51,000 physician and medical student members. It is located in Austin and has 110 component county medical societies around the state. TMA’s key objective since 1853 is to improve the health of all Texans.
