You will be engaged in a wonderful experience as you live through an elegant evening of pure pleasure and excitement. We wlll begin with a musical selection by one of America’s most talented violinists, Kendall Isadore, followed by examples of ‘was is’ and ‘can be’ for many women in America, as we learn about the contributions of three talented members of the Auxiliary to the National Medical Association. Not only were they the signatories of ANMA’s Articles of Incorporation, but they also made outstanding contributions to improving the lives of many individuals. They have provided an indelible imprint in community service. Following our tribute to them, we will proceed to a REAL LIVE AUCTION, where you may bid on that trip that you’ve always wanted or the piece of jewelry that is unforgettable. As we transition from one activity to another, we will be facilitated in preparing a cocktails and ‘mocktails’ from a well-recognized Mixologist.

About the National Medical Association

About NMA

The National Medical Association (NMA) is the collective voice of African American physicians and the leading force for parity and justice in medicine and the elimination of disparities in health. NMA is committed to improving the quality of health among minorities and disadvantaged people through its membership, professional development, community health education, advocacy, research and partnerships with federal and private agencies.


It gives me a chance to network with other physicians who share my goals and the challenges I face working towards decreasing health disparities. As the Co-Director of the Rabb-Venable Excellence in Research Program, I also look forward each year to meeting with the youngest generation of underrepresented minority residents and medical students to join our community. In addition to mentoring the new ophthalmologists, I coordinate the Eye Education Program and free screenings with AAO and the Ophthalmology section for NMA attendees and the community.
