CANDIDATES WITH A CURE FIELD E-QUESTIONS AT FALL CONFERENCE
A highlight of 2012 TMA Fall Conference was our open forum with six physician and alliance candidates for the Texas Legislature and U.S. Congress. From veterans like U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, MD (R-Flower Mound), and State Sen. Bob Deuell, MD (R-Greenville), to State House hopeful J.D. Sheffield, DO (R-Gatesville), panelists shared their predictions on coming legislative battles. But the candidates were the only ones with microphones. Our on-site audience asked their questions via text message and Twitter. Moderator Ross Ramsey, executive editor of The Texas Tribune, received them on his iPad then posed them to the panel. Topics ranged from Medicaid and medical education funding to the future of the federal health care reform law. Read more about what makes doctors run for office, in this preview from November’s Texas Medicine.
