As a physician, you are a key player in the well-being of your patients, and the Texas Medical Association is here to help you continue to improve.

Help keep your community safe and healthy through TMA’s outreach programs, including Hard Hats for Little Heads, which seeks to reduce brain injuries and encourages kids to exercise by giving away bicycle helmets at local events. As a benefit of membership, TMA provides everything you need for your local event, from helmets, to publicity and educational materials, to media support. It's all made possible through funding from the TMA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the TMA.

As a TMA member, you also get the latest public health news delivered straight to your inbox, and you can take advantage of FREE continuing medical education (CME) on public health topics that affect you locally.
