The Texas Medical Association Political Action Committee (TEXPAC) is the political arm of TMA. It's the largest bipartisan political action committee in the state and ranks first in size among other state medical association PACs. If you haven't joined TEXPAC its not too late to get involved.
The TMA Alliance is working with the physician members of TMA to educate Texans on the fact that immunizations are an important, safe, and effective tool in the effort to curb disease through the Be Wise —ImmunizeSM program. Be Wise is funded by a grant from the TMA Foundation. Alliance members also are playing an important role in local and state elections and in this year's session of the Texas Legislature through grassroots efforts to educate lawmakers on the need to pass legislation that helps physicians maintain their patients' health.
The TMA Foundation was created with a mission "to fund initiatives with the power to help physicians create a healthier future for all Texans." These initiatives focus on TMA's public health and science priorities: health promotion and disease prevention; targeted public health issues; science-based clinical decision making; public health advocacy and resources; scientific information; and border health. They are based on physician expertise and medical science, and encourage effective public-private partnerships.
