Wichita Falls Physician Reelected to TMA Leadership Position

September 12, 2020

Jed Grisel, MD, a Wichita Falls otolaryngologist in practice for 11 years, was reelected District 13 councilor on the Texas Medical Association (TMA) Board of Councilors.

TMA’s House of Delegates policymaking body met virtually on Saturday to ratify the last of this year’s TMA elections. 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. Grisel is a member of the Wichita County Medical Society.

Read the descriptions and charges of each TMA board, council, and committee, including TMA’s Board of Councilors.

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.
