NTLAPA

North Texas Latin American Physicians Association

The North Texas Latin American Physicians Association (NTLAPA) is a local nonprofit organization of Latin physicians and professional healthcare leaders working together to improve the quality of healthcare for the communities in North Texas through scholarship and community support. Our special mission is to represent all Latin American physicians, physicians with Latin ancestry, all physicians and all healthcare professionals wishing to join us. We want to promote fellowship and unify physicians in North Texas and represent those physicians’ interests at the local, state and national level. Furthermore, in the community, we hope to promote health, wellness and education in the North Texas area through community outreach programs and community support. When you join NTLAPA, you become a member of the only Latin/Hispanic American Physicians nonprofit organization in North Texas.

Members come from all walks of life; however, the values of friendship and service are the principles that bring us together. As a member, you will get many added value services such as a listing in our website, free classified ads, insurance discounts with Northwestern Mutual. You will have an opportunity for referrals through our NTLAPA directory, physicians, and website. You will also have the opportunity to engage with our physicians from your community and develop a business and friendship network. You will have special opportunities for CME, educational dinner events, and a once a year Gala. You can contact any of the Board Members or call our office for further information or questions you may have. We look forward to welcoming you into NTLAPA.

We look forward in building something special together,

James Chanez, M.D., President and Founder
