(Editors’ note: Lou Goodman did not write, edit, or approve this news item.) AMA this weekend recognized the tremendous service that TMA EVP Lou Goodman, PhD, has provided to the profession of medicine. Dr. Goodman was the 2009 recipient of AMA’s Medical Executive Lifetime Achievement Award for his 12 years at the helm of TMA. He also was director of TMA’s Division of Medical Economics and a legendary researcher on the AMA staff. In presenting the award to Dr. Goodman, AMA President Jim Rohack, MD, cited Lou’s leadership in the passage of Texas’ 2003 health care liability reforms and Medical Economics magazine’s citation of TMA as “America’s Best Medical Society.” Please join your TMA staff in extending hearty and well-deserved congratulations and thanks to Lou for his lifetime of service to physicians.
