Past Highlights

My Convention Story

“The scientific sessions provide excellent information on advances in my specialty in an environment conducive to discussing special practice issues important for my patients. Spontaneous engagement and discussions with physicians and other healthcare professionals with similar patient demographics further enhances my learning and engagement during the NMA conference.”

– Roland Matthews, MD

“I rely on the organization’s leadership to convene critical discussions focused on health policy, healthcare reform and the challenges facing physicians not only in clinical practice, but those in leadership in health plans, academia, pharmaceutical/ biotechnology industry and public health. NMA convention is also a great time to connect with my medical school alumni, friends and colleagues.”

– Rose Blackburn, M.D., MBA

WHY I ATTEND THE NMA CONVENTION

I attended my first NMA conference in 2010 as a fourth year medical student. Dr. Leon McDougle (and???) wrapped their arms around me as a medical student and have provided me with ongoing support through my training and career. The network of NMA physicians serves as role models.
