Athens FP elected vice chair of the TMA Board

Douglas Curran, M.D.

Douglas Curran, M.D., of Athens, was recently elected as vice chair to the Texas Medical Association’s Board of Trustees. He has served on the board for the last five years and also currently serves on TAFP’s Nominating Committee and as the alternate delegate to AAFP’s Congress of Delegates. 

“I think it’s really good for those of us in family medicine to be involved in the house of medicine because it helps everybody understand what family doctors do,” Curran said. “An opportunity to be on the Board of Trustees is just acknowledging my commitment to patient care and the community of physicians in Texas.”

“I consider it a huge privilege to represent other physicians. It’s really humbling to get to do this. I love our profession and I love what I do.”

Through his work with both TAFP and TMA, Curran hopes to affect change. “If I’ve been able to help formulate some laws that will help people get care, that’s what it’s about.”
