Last week, family physicians from around the state traveled to TexMed, the Texas Medical Association’s annual conference, to earn continuing medical education credit, set TMA policy on medicine’s key issues, and network with specialty colleagues and friends. TMA convened its Congress of Delegates, held elections for top leadership positions, and honored members with awards.

He has held numerous positions at TMA, including chairing the Council on Socioeconomics and serving on the Council on Legislation, Select Committee on Health System Reform, Select Committee on Patient Safety, and Committee on Cancer. In addition, Dr. Foxhall is past president of the Harris County Medical Society and the Houston Academy of Medicine. A graduate of Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Foxhall is professor of clinical cancer prevention and vice president for health policy at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

T. “Lamar” McNew, M.D. Award from the TMA Resident and Fellow Section for his outstanding service to that section, and Lubbock family physician Steve Robinson, M.D., who was awarded the C.
