Congratulations to physician Howard Marcus, MD, who was recognized by the Texas Chapter of the American College of Physicians (ACP) as Advocate of the Year. Dr. Marcus, an Austin internist with Austin Regional Clinic, is a statewide leader in medical liability reform from his post as chair of the Texas Alliance for Patient Access. “Dr. Marcus has demonstrated outstanding leadership in the areas of legislative advocacy and grassroots activism,” ACP said. “He has worked tirelessly with our elected representatives on behalf of Texas physicians and their patients; he has effectively communicated health care issues on behalf of the Texas Chapter of the ACP to elected officials.” The Texas chapter added that Dr. Marcus “represents the best in advocacy and serves as a role model for all of us to be involved in legislative activities in the service of our patients. He is a true leader of Texas medicine in general and the Texas Chapter of the American College of Physicians.”
