POEP WINS $500,000 GRANT

The Cancer Prevention and Resource Institute of Texas approved a half-million-dollar grant to TMA’s Physician Oncology Education Program (POEP) for the next fiscal year. The grant, a big increase over POEP’s previous funding, will pay for seven physician education modules. TMA formed POEP in 1987. Its role is to educate primary care physicians about the state of the art and science in cancer prevention, screening, early detection, and control. Lewis Foxhall, MD, of Houston, the current chair of the POEP Steering Committee, did yeoman’s work along with our staff to secure the grant.
