TAPA LEADERS DEFEND LIABILITY REFORMS AT TEXAS TRIBUNE DEBATE
Congratulations to Texas Alliance for Patient Access (TAPA) Chair Howard Marcus, MD, and general counsel Mike Hull on a great job at the Texas Tribune Festival. The two squared off against one of the state’s top trial lawyers and a national health reform expert in a debate over the benefits of our 2003 liability reforms. Actually, it wasn’t much of a debate, as Mike and Dr. Marcus had both skill and the facts on their side. The festival’s health and human services track included an address by U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, MD (R-Lewisville). Former TMA President Jim Rohack, MD; state Rep. John Zerwas, MD (R-Simonton); and former TMA Council on Legislation Chair Spencer Berthelson, MD, also participated in panel discussions during the festival.
