Hurricane Harvey has inflicted significant damage upon Houston, Texas, dumping over 40 inches of rain so far. More than 17,000 people have sought refuge, and heavy rain threatens to continue throughout the week.

Many Texas physicians have reported losing their offices, medical records and equipment.
 
The Texas Medical Association (TMA) has launched a relief fund to protect and reestablish the public health infrastructure that serves those devastated by Harvey. In a show of solidarity, the California Medical Association (CMA) has donated $10,000 to the relief fund and encourages California physicians to contribute so we can help Houston physicians get back on their feet and serving their communities.
 
YOU can help support our physician colleagues in Texas by taking action now.
 
Please consider donating to TMA’s Physicians Benevolent Fund, through the CMA Foundation: phcdocs.org.
