Leadership opportunities abound within the National Medical Association. But too often the path to leadership seems vague and difficult to navigate. . But you would be amazed at how similar the journey is for members who have successfully achieved local, regional or national office. More importantly what you can do for the health of your colleagues and the African Americans we serve within our community is unlimited; if you decide to be involved. The Past Presidents understand better both the path to leadership in the NMA and satisfaction of a job well done.

This Forum with be hosted and supported by all the Past Presidents. We want to encourage you to take the “road less travelled” and gather a few tips from those who lead now and those who have lead in the past. This is a first for the Past President’s Council, and we are delighted to offer this presentation and we invite you to participate.

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.

WHY I ATTEND THE NMA CONVENTION

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.
