Dr. Goodman Honored by TMAF Fund

Outstanding speakers and critical education for physicians to lead the future of medicine will reach new heights thanks 33 donors whose generous gifts have established The Louis J. Goodman Lectureship on Leadership in Medicine. The lectureship honors Louis J. Goodman, PhD, CEO and executive vice president of TMA, who recently announced plans to retire.

Speakers supported by the TMAF Leadership in Medicine Fund will be selected based on their contributions to the profession of medicine and on issues related to physician leadership in a dynamic, changing health care environment.

More than $72,000 was raised, including an extraordinary lead gift of $25,000 from Austin I. King, MD, Abilene. Dr. King, a TMA past president, offered to match donations dollar for dollar up to $25,000 and within six weeks, 32 donors contributed $47,150.

Under the stewardship of the TMA Foundation Board of Trustees, the TMAF Leadership in Medicine Fund will grow over the years as we seek additional contributions to ensure that critical education and leadership development opportunities are available for Texas physicians and TMA.
