Dr. Douglas Curran of Athens served as Physician of the Day Tuesday during the opening day of the 80th Texas Legislature.

Tradition requires that the president of the Texas Academy of Family Physicians serve as the first Physician of the Day. After being introduced on the Senate floor, Dr. Curran proceeded to the House floor.

“Dr. Curran has served as Physician of the Day on many occasions,” said State Rep. Betty Brown, who represents Athens and Henderson County, “and the members of the Legislature are in good hands whenever he is here.”

Curran is a staff physician with East Texas Medical Center and Lakeland Medical Associates.
