HOUSTON PAIR TAKE REINS AS NEW LEADERS OF TMA AND ALLIANCE



Neonatologist Michael Speer, MD, and longtime political activist Linda Adkins — both of Houston — are the new presidents of TMA and the TMA Alliance. Dr. Speer was installed as TMA’s 147th president and Mrs. Adkins as the 95th TMA Alliance president at TexMed 2012 in Dallas. Dr. Speer told the TMA House of Delegates that his goal is to increase TMA membership from nearly 46,000 to 50,000 by the end of his one-year term. “Because the more physician boots on the ground and the more physician voices in the air when discussing medical issues with mothers, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, and … by the way … legislators, the more we are heard, and respected,” he said. “Go out and multiply.”
