GOVERNOR PERRY WINS AMA'S DR. NATHAN DAVIS AWARD FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICE
Nominated by TMA for his leadership in tort reform, Gov. Rick Perry was one of eight to win this year’s Dr. Nathan Davis Award for Outstanding Government Service (PDF) from the American Medical Association. “Gov. Perry’s successful efforts to reform Texas’ medical liability climate exemplify his dedication to improving care for Texas patients,” said AMA President-Elect Jim Rohack, MD. “Thousands of physicians have flocked to Texas, providing Texans with increased access to health care, including much-needed specialist and emergency medicine physicians.” Governor Perry said on Twitter he was "very grateful for TMA's support and confidence" and "humbled by the award."
