DR. KING TALKS UP MEDICINE IN WICHITA FALLS
In a 90-minute meeting with the Wichita Falls Times Record News, TMA President Austin King, MD, laid out the problems that beset medical practices today and the solutions we propose in TMA’s Healthy Vision 2020, Second Edition. “Physicians in these areas, like every place else, are inundated by red tape and by hassles with all these different medical programs,” Dr. King said. “And in rural areas, most of the programs are government programs.” He was joined by two Wichita Falls-area physician leaders: Susan Strate, MD, vice speaker of the TMA House of Delegates; and Jonathan Williams, MD, chair of the TMA Committee on Rural Health. The visit was the first of many Dr. King will make across the state in coming months. Today he is meeting with the editors at his hometown Abilene Reporter-News.
