Your Gifts Will Help Keep Texans Healthy Throughout 2019

Helping Texans increase their physical activity, protect themselves from serious diseases, and learn about how herbal and folk medical remedies are related to conventional prescribed medicines. What do these programs have in common?

They are among the 2019 TMA initiatives made possible through Texas Medical Association Foundation (TMAF) grants. 

This year, the Foundation will provide more than $608,000 in grants to support seven TMA programs, including three signature community-based initiatives: Hard Hats for Little Heads, Walk with a Doc Texas, and Be Wise — ImmunizeSM

Other TMA programs made possible by TMA’s charitable arm include the TMA Diversity in Medicine Scholarship Program, the Ernest and Sarah Butler Awards for Excellence in Science Teaching, the Distinguished Speaker Series, and a traveling version of the “Deep Roots” educational exhibit.

In addition, TMAF approved $36,050 for 10 programs that TMA county medical societies and alliance and medical student chapters will carry out in 2019.

All of this is possible thanks to gifts from individuals and institutions, as well as investment income from TMAF endowments and funds. 

If you would like to support these efforts and other initiatives with a tax-deductible gift, visit the TMAF website.
