Amarillo Physician to Serve in TMA Leadership Positions

September 12, 2020

Rodney B. Young, MD, an Amarillo family physician in practice for 20 years, was appointed chair of the Texas Medical Association (TMA) Council on Socioeconomics and reappointed as consultant to the TMA Council on Medical Education.

TMA’s House of Delegates policymaking body met virtually on Saturday to ratify the last of this year’s TMA elections and appointments. The 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. Young is a member of the Potter-Randall County Medical Society.

Read the descriptions and charges of each TMA board, council, and committee, including the Councils on Socioeconomics and Medical Education.

TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing more than 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.
