TMA represents more than 10,000 Tennessee physicians and physicians-in-training

Leslie Treece, M.D., a Cookeville pediatrician, was reelected to serve The Tennessee Medical Association (TMA) (a nonprofit professional organization for Tennessee physicians) board of trustees and will serve as vice chair. This will be Dr. Treece’s second consecutive term on the board.

TMA represents more than 10,000 Tennessee physicians and physicians-in-training, TMA said in a release. The organization advocates for public policies, laws and rules that promote health care safety and quality for all Tennesseans and improve the nonclinical aspects of practicing medicine.

“As a former president of the Upper Cumberland Medical Society, Dr. Treece is a key leader in the association. As a small-town physician, Dr. Treece brings unique perspectives to the board and represents all of region 5 well,” according to the release.

The region spans across 20 Tennessee counties, including:

  • Cannon
  • Clay
  • Cumberland
  • Dekalb
  • Fentress
  • Grundy
  • Jackson
  • Macon
  • Overton
  • Pickett
  • Putnam
  • Rutherford
  • Sequatchie
  • Smith
  • Sumner
  • Trousdale
  • Van Buren
  • Warren
  • White
  • Wilson

Treece, a 2018 graduate of the Ingram Institute for Physician Leadership’s Leadership Lab, will serve on the board for a two-year term, ending in the spring of 2026. The Leadership Lab is a leadership development program “aimed at giving physicians’ real-world experience through leadership projects.” She has been a member of the Upper Cumberland Medical Society for almost 20 years.
