A nationally known expert on measuring and improving the quality of medical care is the new president of TMA. Josie Williams, MD, took the oath of office at TexMed 2008 in a room packed with family and friends. She pledged to lead TMA and Texas physicians in a movement to transform medicine. “There is no way to do it the way we’ve always done it,” Dr. Williams said. “We cannot attempt to deliver 2009 medicine in a 1950 chassis. It’s like trying to launch the space shuttle into orbit on the backs of the Kitty Hawk.” Dr. Williams is the fourth female president of TMA, and the first since Betty Stephenson, MD, of Houston, in 1994.
