TAFP members graduate from leadership program
Two TAFP members recently completed the Texas Medical Association’s Leadership College. Ahmad Ghassan Abazid, MD, of the Wichita Falls Family Practice Residency Program, and Darnel Viray Dabu, MD, MPH, FAAFP, of the Community Health Center of Lubbock, both graduated as part of the program’s class of 2015.
TMA established the Leadership College in 2010 to ensure strong and sustainable physician leadership within organized medicine. Graduates of the program serve as thought leaders who can bridge the gap between clinicians and health care policymakers and be role models for their local communities. Including more than 40 hours of classroom instruction, the program is designed for physicians under the age of 40 who have been practicing for less than eight years.
