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.
The NMA Convention is a unique and empowering gathering of African Americans physicians and others of color in the health care fields. Because the NMA consists of multiple disciplines I am able to update in my field of Pediatrics as well as in other areas that are important for my own health and wellness! I am able to participate in substantive policy and political strategy discussions as well as reunion time with classmates and colleagues. Additionally it’s an opportunity to mentor students and residents of color. It is the one medical conference that I will continue to attend even when I retire from the clinical practice of Medicine.
