Two Tyler-area physicians will begin new terms of service in Texas Medical Association (TMA) leadership positions during the TMA Fall Conference next week.
TMA leaders appoint or elect TMA 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.
Jeffrey L. Levin, MD, an occupational medicine physician in practice for 32 years, was reappointed to serve as a consultant to TMA’s Council on Science and Public Health. This council develops TMA policy on critical public health and medical science issues, advances TMA’s leadership in medical science and public health advocacy, and provides physicians timely public health and scientific information on current topics. Dr. Levin is a member of the Smith County Medical Society.
Lucia L. Williams, MD, an obstetrician-gynecologist in practice for 31 years, was reappointed to and named chair of TMA’s Committee on Rural Health. The committee reviews and comments on laws, regulations, and activities that affect patient care in rural areas. Dr. Williams is a member of the Cherokee County Medical Society.
TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing nearly 53,000 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.
