The Texas Medical Association (TMA) today installed Athens family physician Douglas W. Curran, MD, as its 153rd president. Outgoing TMA President Carlos J. Cardenas, MD, of Edinburg installed Dr. Curran today during TexMed, the association’s annual conference.
Douglas Curran, MD, became the 153rd president of the Texas Medical Association at TexMed 2018 on Saturday, urging fellow physicians to do their part to bring civility back to a world full of negativity.
When you’re an “old country doc” — as Athens family physician Douglas Curran, MD, readily calls himself — relationships are key. Small-town physicians like him don’t enjoy the luxury of anonymity, whether they want it or not. You get to know your patients, and they get to know you.
TMA’s History of Medicine Committee presents an online exhibit featuring portraits and short biographical sketches of all TMA presidents. Read the biographies in the notes section below each slide and learn interesting facts about TMA presidents. This online exhibit is a work in progress. More biographies will be added during the year.
