TMA AND ALLIANCE LEGISLATORS TO OUTLINE TEXAS ROAD TO REFORM THIS WEEKEND
I look forward to seeing you Friday and Saturday for TMA 2010 Fall Conference at the Hyatt Regency Austin. Our closing general session Saturday morning features three of our own who will be making key decisions in the 2011 Texas Legislature. Rep. Susan King (R-Abilene), a TMA Alliance member, will join Rep. Mark Shelton, MD (R-Fort Worth), and Rep.-to-be Charles Schwertner, MD (R-Georgetown), to discuss “Shaping Health System Reform in Texas.” Other general session speakers Saturday include Andrew Gurman, MD, vice speaker of the American Medical Association House of Delegates, who will discuss the next steps in health system reform; and William Darling, JD, who will talk about accountable care organizations and your options. Online registration for the conference is closed, but you still may register in person on Friday at the Hyatt or TMA building and on Saturday at the Hyatt. Please note that there will be several road closures on the route from the TMA building to the Hyatt. On Friday, part of Cesar Chavez and the First Street Bridge will be closed for Austin Start Heart Walk; Thursday through Sunday, part of Congress Avenue and 11th Street will be closed for the Texas Book Festival.
