The Texas Medical Association installed Dallas surgeon Rick Snyder, MD, as its 158th president. He took office in a ceremony before TMA’s House of Delegates policymaking body at TexMed, TMA’s annual conference, in Fort Worth. He will lead America’s largest state medical society for one year.
The TMA Board of Trustees (BOT) manages business and financial affairs of the association, implements policies of the House of Delegates, establishes interim policy of the association between meetings of the House of Delegates, and monitors program activities of association councils and committees.
