Helping Texans increase their
physical activity, protect themselves from serious diseases, and learn about how
herbal and folk medical remedies are related to conventional prescribed
medicines. What do these programs have in common?
They are among the 2019 TMA
initiatives made possible through Texas
Medical Association Foundation (TMAF)
This year, the Foundation
will provide more than $608,000 in grants to support seven TMA programs, including
three signature community-based initiatives: Hard
Hats for Little Heads, Walk with a
Doc Texas, and Be Wise — ImmunizeSM.
Other TMA programs made
possible by TMA’s charitable arm include the TMA Diversity in Medicine Scholarship Program, the Ernest and Sarah Butler Awards for Excellence in
Science Teaching, the Distinguished
Speaker Series, and a traveling version of the “Deep Roots” educational exhibit.
In addition, TMAF approved $36,050
for 10 programs that TMA county medical societies and alliance and medical
student chapters will carry out in 2019.
All of this is possible
thanks to gifts from individuals and institutions, as well as investment income
from TMAF endowments and funds.
If you would like to support these
efforts and other
initiatives with a tax-deductible
gift, visit the TMAF website.
