While not originally from Texas, I have spent the majority of my time on earth in the Lone Star State. It’s big and beautiful, and chock full of some of the best physicians in the world. We have first-class facilities and cutting-edge care that are the envy of other places across the globe. And, we have an inspirational and dedicated core of leaders at the helm of both TMA and the alliance who make us the strongest associations of our kind in the country.
Mark your calendar now to join us during the 85th Texas Legislature on Feb. 7, March 7, April 4 and May 2, 2017. March 7 is designated the official Alliance First Tuesday at the Capitol. Join us!
