Hurricane Harvey had catastrophic effects on many communities in Texas. Our fellow colleagues have suffered damage to their offices and in some cases may not be able to serve their patients for a number of months. TAAIS has started a Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to assist our colleagues in getting their offices open so patient care can continue. Our patients are in desperate need of our care and we need to assist our colleagues in reopening their practices.
If your practice is in a federally declared disaster county and you need assistance, please complete and submit this TAAIS Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Application by November 15, 2017:
TMA also has a Disaster Relief Program and you can apply for assistance through TMA at www.texmed.org/disaster
