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.
