TMA Chooses Houston Emergency Physician for President-Elect

Houston emergency physician Diana L. Fite, MD, was elected the new president-elect of the Texas Medical Association (TMA). The TMA House of Delegates policymaking body elected Dr. Fite to serve in this leadership role for one year, before she assumes the presidency.

"It is my honor to serve as president-elect of TMA, the largest state medical association in the nation,” she said. “I feel like God has given me the opportunity to be in the position of president-elect and then president for a reason, and I accept the challenge to work to make a positive difference to help physicians take care of our patients as we were trained to do.” She hopes to draw on the power of TMA’s nearly 53,000 members to effect positive changes in medicine.

Dr. Fite has attended many TMA First Tuesdays at the Capitol lobby days each legislative session since the program began in 2003, to advocate for health care legislation to improve patient care. She also supports TMA’s political action committee, TEXPAC, as a Capitol Club member and charter Patron member.

Dr. Fite also has served as president of HCMS, the Houston Society of Emergency Medicine, Texas College of Emergency Physicians, and the American Association of Women Emergency Physicians.

Dr. Fite is the mother of eight children, and has more than a dozen grandchildren.
