The August issue of Texas Medicine features a cover story on Zika virus and TMA's advocacy to urge lawmakers in Washington, D.C., to agree on a funding package to combat the spread of the disease. In the issue, you'll also find a profile of Stuart D. Flynn, MD, the inaugural dean of the new Fort Worth allopathic medical school. The August issue highlights information on TMA and AMA's call for a federal patient safety center that would collect reported data on electronic health record-related adverse events; graduate medical education expansion grant awards; TMA's fight to keep sleep apnea diagnosis and screening within the scope of practice for physicians; and steps physicians can take to prevent cyber attacks.
