Vaccines Defend What Matters (formerly Be Wise – Immunize) is TMA’s integrated, multimedia public health education and advocacy effort to overcome vaccine hesitancy and increase vaccination rates in Texas.
TMA is committed to improving the health of all Texans – and committed to helping you improve the health of your communities. TMA offers ready-made outreach programs to connect you with your patients and community: Vaccines Defend What Matters (formerly Be Wise – Immunize), Hard Hats for Little Heads, and Walk With a Doc Texas.
In this time of social distancing, Walk With a Doc, a national organization that promotes physicians walking within their community, is still going strong with virtual walks.
Hard Hats for Little Heads promotes keeping kids active and safe. TMA provides a generous match on your purchase of helmets to properly fit on kids – plus all you need for a winning bike helmet giveaway event.
Hard Hats for Little Heads is made possible through a grant from the TMA Foundation.
TMA Foundation (TMAF) is a 501 (c) (3) organization committed to connecting the charitable concerns of physicians with the people of Texas. TMAF funded initiatives enable physicians and their families to give back to their community and take a visible leadership role toward improving the health of all Texans.
TMA and the TMA Foundation provide a number of scholarships and statewide awards to both celebrate and invest in the future of medicine.
