Representative Davis Picks Up Year’s First TMA Patient Protection Award
When you look at the voting record of State Rep. Sarah Davis (R-West University Place), it’s obvious she listens to what her physician-constituents have to tell her. When you realize that more physicians live in her district than in any other in Texas, you have an even better understanding of her 100-percent voting record with medicine — everything from the budget to public health to insurance and scope of practice issues in the 2015 Texas Legislature. Arlo Weltge, MD, vice speaker of the TMA House of Delegates and one of the many physicians whom Representative Davis represents, presented her with the first 2015 TMA Patient Protection Award, which we issue to thank and call attention to those lawmakers who do best by physicians and patients. Others who will receive 2015 awards in the future at upcoming TMA and other physician-led events — contact TEXPAC Director Clayton Stewart if you want to help — are State Reps. Four Price (R-Amarillo), Drew Darby (R-San Angelo), Carol Alvarado (D-Houston), Ken Sheets (R-Dallas), Todd Hunter (R-Corpus Christi), and Senfronia Thompson (D-Houston); and State Sens. Juan Hinojosa (D-McAllen), Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe), Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound), and Judith Zaffirini (D-Laredo). Congratulations and thank you.
