    More Than You Think We Are

    The TMA Alliance is a diverse volunteer force of approximately 4,000 members, both male and female, and from many cultural backgrounds, working together to make a difference in health care and health issues for Texans. Primary interests are in community service and matters involving legislation and political action.

    Do you want to make a difference in your community by working for a healthier Texas? If membership in TMA Alliance interests you, or you have any other questions about us, contact TMAA at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1331, or send an email to TMAA.

  • From the President
    A Message from Patty Loose, AustinWhat an honor it is to represent the Texas Medical Association Alliance as the 98th President. As I was installed, I pondered the question-- Why are we a part of this organization? Because we care! We care about the family of medicine. We care about the future of medicine. And mostly, we care about the patients. They are why we all belong. But one important fact remains: If we weren’t here, they still would be. If we don’t fight this fight, whether it’s in our legislator’s office, in the examination rooms, or with the insurance companies, we certainly will never win the battle for a healthier Texas.

  • Congratulations to Keely Hunsaker, DDS! TEXPAC named Keely Hunsaker, DDS, of Corpus Christi, as the 2013-2014 recipient of its June Bratcher Award for Political Action. TEXPAC honored her with the award at a reception during this year’s TexMed. TEXPAC presents the June Bratcher Award for Political Action every two years to a TMAA member who was an outstanding volunteer in a federal or state political campaign. TEXPAC modeled the award in 1987 after a similar American Medical Association Political Action Committee award, whose first recipient was June Bratcher of San Antonio. Keely is a practicing dentist in Corpus Christi and is married to TMA and TMAA physician member, and immediate past TEXPAC Chair Jerry Hunsaker, MD, an ophthalmologist. Keely served as TMAA president from 2006-2007. Keely has cultivated personal relationships with her elected officials, has organized several political fundraisers, door-belled for TEXPAC endorsed candidates, and is a TEXPAC board member.
