The past week of freezing temperatures, power outages, and water shortages tested our state in ways that we are still understanding. The Texas Medical Association thanks all physicians for your strength and resilience as you worked to preserve the health and safety of your community even amid your own challenges.

If you would like to share with your physician colleagues the challenges or triumphs you or your patients experienced this past week, send your stories via email to David Doolittle, TMA director of Physician Publications.

And if you are struggling, the TMA Physicians Benevolent Fund is here for you in your time of need. The fund helps qualified recipients with personal expenses such as rent or mortgage, utilities, insurance, medical bills, clothing, and food
