Texas Medical Freedom
Texas Medical Freedom is an initiative of Texas Right To Know. The Texas Medical Freedom website details its mission to expose to the public examples where the Texas Medical Board (TMB) is exerting sanctions against health practitioners who practice under Title 22 Part 9 Chapter 200 of the Texas Administrative Code - Standards for Physicians Practicing Complementary and Alternative Medicine. When practitioners are investigated by the TMB after providing legal and compliant alternative medicine, the TMB evaluates the situation using guidelines for conventional therapies. Many times investigations include review of private patient records without patient consent or without a warrant and can lead to sanctions or revocation of the health practitioner's license without due process.
On December 9, 2016, the TMB will be having a Sunset Committee Hearing starting at 9:00 in room E1.030 at the Texas Capitol. We are looking for community team leaders to organize vans or buses to bring people who care about having access to complementary and alternative healthcare to join our "TMB Don't Mess with Me" Rally and Lobby Day.
