Jasper Physician to Start Serving in TMA Leadership Position

September 12, 2020

Ronnie A. McMurry, MD, a family and emergency medicine physician in practice for 38 years, was appointed to the Texas Medical Association (TMA) Committee on Rural Health.

TMA’s House of Delegates policymaking body met virtually on Saturday to ratify the last of this year’s TMA elections and appointments. The COVID-19 pandemic forced TMA to alter its governance and meeting processes. Physician leaders have used virtual meetings and special governance provisions this year to elect or appoint physicians and medical students to one or more of TMA’s 25 boards, councils, and committees. The physicians are responsible for studying health care-related issues and making recommendations on important health care policy affecting Texas patients and their physicians.

Dr. McMurry is a member of the Jasper-Newton County Medical Society.
