Denton Physicians Begin Serving in TMA Leadership Positions

October 29, 2018

Two Denton physicians began new terms of service in Texas Medical Association (TMA) leadership positions, during the recent TMA Fall Conference held just outside Austin.

TMA leaders appoint or elect TMA member physicians and medical students to one of TMA’s 25 boards, councils, and committees. They are responsible for studying health care-related issues and making recommendations on important health care policy affecting Texas patients and their physicians. 

John Gerard Flores, MD, a Little Elm internist in practice for 21 years, began serving as chair of TMA’s Council on Socioeconomics. The council makes recommendations related to the socioeconomic aspects of medical care and regulations that affect physicians and their patients. 

Monica Popov, MD, a Denton obstetrician-gynecologist in practice for 18 years, began a final term on TMA’s Council on Socioeconomics. (See Dr. Flores’ entry above for the council’s charge.)

Both physicians are members of the Denton County Medical Society.

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.
