Dr. Burgess Receives AMA Government Service Award
The Texans who traveled to Washington, D.C., last week, gave a standing ovation for a long-overdue honor given to U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess, MD (R-Lewisville), the only TMA member in Congress. As the outstanding U.S. representative, Dr. Burgess received a 2015 Dr. Nathan Davis Award for Outstanding Government Service — AMA’s highest award for elected officials and government employees. The award, named for the founding father of AMA, recognizes elected and career officials in federal, state, or municipal service whose outstanding contributions have promoted the art and science of medicine and the betterment of public health. TMA nominated Dr. Burgess for the award.
