Tomorrow: TMA Policymaking 101


In recent years, Texas Medical Association section members have requested specialized training on policymaking within organized medicine. Heeding that call, TMA is offering its latest virtual webinar, Policy Making 101: Learn How to Make a Difference, on Wednesday, Oct. 13 at 6 pm.

Susan Strate, MD, past speaker of the TMA House of Delegates and a current delegate for the Wichita County Medical Society, will facilitate the in-depth discussion among expert panelists who have successfully created meaningful policy at various levels of organized medicine. Panelists will include:

  • Arlo Weltge, MD, past speaker of the House of Delegates and a member of the Texas delegation to the American Medical Association;
  • Linda Siy, MD, delegate for the Tarrant County Medical Society;
  • Mark Casanova, MD, chair of TMA’s Council on Health Service Organizations; and
  • Lenore DePagter, MD, delegate for the Lone Star Caucus.

The interactive virtual program will explore policymaking best practices, including:

  • Defining and evaluating a TMA policy resolution;
  • What items are part of TMA’s scope of work; and
  • What happens to a resolution once it reaches the House of Delegates.
