"Organized in 1918, the Texas Medical Association Alliance (TMAA) is one of the oldest volunteer groups in the state, and continues to make a difference, county by county, through projects targeting Texans of all ages."
Partnering with the TMAA "to improve the health of all Texans", the Harris County Medical Society Alliance (HCMSA) was organized in 1919. HCMSA offers it's approximately 300 members varioius venues and opportunities for both fellowship with the medical family and participation with medically related community programs.
Members may participate in state-sponsored health projects such as, “Be Wise –
Immunize”, “Hard Hats for Little Heads”, and simultaneously participate in local
health and community projects such as the 37th annual Touch Smell & Hear
Holiday function for the sensory and physically impaired youth, “Jump Rope for
Health” program against obesity, or volunteer with the outstanding community programs at the Medical Museum.
Members may also assist with the annual fundraiser that raises funds for nursing and medical student scholarships and other health related programs. In 2009, $10,000 was distributed in medical student scholarships and $15,000 in nursing scholarships. Members may chose to join a HCMSA special interest group or attend monthly meetings to socialize and hear guest speakers or tour sites of special interest. Also members may chose to participate as a legislative advocate by attending “1st Tuesdays” at the State Capital or participating in TMAA meetings.
The opportunities to participate in the HSCMA are many and we urge you to join in the fun and camaraderie with the medical family!
