SUE TAKES THE GAVEL; OTHER TEXANS TAKE THE LEAD
TMA Immediate Past President Sue Bailey, MD, walked to the podium this weekend for her first session as vice speaker of the AMA House of Delegates. Elected in June, the Fort Worth allergist runs the meeting alongside House Speaker Andy Gurman, MD, of Pennsylvania. A quartet of other Texas physicians played leadership roles in the meeting as we continue our work to make AMA more like TMA. Nacogdoches ophthalmologist Lyle Thorstenson, MD, chaired the Reference Committee on AMA Finance and Governance. Drs. Ed Buckingham of Austin and Gary Floyd of Fort Worth served on the Reference Committee on Legislation. Melissa Garretson, MD, of Fort Worth served on the Reference Committee on Medical Service, Medical Practice, and Insurance.
