TMA FOUNDATION HONORS CHAMPIONS OF HEALTH, NEW TOP DONORS
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price’s campaign to overcome her city’s obesity epidemic won the TMA Foundation’s top John P. McGovern Champion of Health Award. Focusing on nutrition, physical activity, and workplace wellness, the FitWorth Healthy City Initiative pushes awareness of healthy choices for Fort Worth students and adults. The Medical Miles Mentorship, where Baylor College of Medicine students mentor Houston middle schoolers in fitness, was the secondary winner. The annual McGovern Award honors exceptional projects that address urgent threats to the public's health, address TMA science and public health priorities, and further the foundation’s mission: to help physicians create a healthier future for all Texans.
