DR. BURROSS WAS A HEALTH CARE LION

I am truly saddened to report that Texas has lost one of its most dedicated and visionary health care leaders with the passing of Cliff Burross, MD. He spent more than 45 years caring for patients in his native Wichita Falls and teaching at the Wichita Falls Family Practice Residency Program. Not only was Dr. Burross a past president of TMA and winner of the TMA Distinguished Service Award, but also he served as president of the Texas Medical Foundation, as a member of the Texas Medical Board and National Board of Medical Examiners, and as a Wichita Falls city alderman. All of us who worked with Dr. Burross will miss his passion for Texas, for patients, and for his profession.
