Advocacy in Action



Lubbock County Medical Society Alliance (LCMSA) and Lubbock County Medical Society have been involved with several organizations to bring awareness to sex trafficking, helping with informational sessions, distributing a sticker campaign, and holding fundraisers for OneVoice Home, a shelter for victims of minor sex trafficking. Please contact Libby or email LCGMSAlliance@aol.com if you would like to become involved in this potentially life-changing project.

LCMSA helped start the South Plains Immunization Network (SPIN). For the last four years, the Alliance has volunteered at the SPIN flu clinic at the South Plains Food Bank and the Christmas Voucher Program at the First United Methodist Church.

For two years, LCMSA members have attended the Spring Health Fair at Harwell Elementary, where they gave out Be Wise - Immunize fact sheets, information on child abduction prevention, and information on the importance of bicycle helmets. Last spring, they gave out bicycle helmets as door prizes. They also held two additional Hard Hats for Little Heads events at Harwell’s Trunk or Treat in October.

For more than 10 years, LCMSA has held Hard Hats for Little Heads events at health fairs at Safety City in Clapp Park, in addition to the Back to School Fiesta at Texas Tech University.

Last June, LCMSA members helped nurses from the Emergency Department at Covenant Children’s Hospital give out over 300 bicycle helmets at a picnic celebrating Covenant Health System’s Centennial in Maxey Park near the hospital.

Every other year, when the legislative session is in place, several members of LCMSA attend First Tuesdays at the Capitol in Austin. Email LCGCMSAlliance@aol.com if you would like to attend.
