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. It is the largest and oldest national organization representing African American physicians and their patients in the United States. 

This week, from August 1 to 5, the NMA is holding its 113th Annual Convention in Detroit, Michigan. NMA is a founding partner of Climate for Health. They urge their member institutions to join Climate for Health and lead by example by increasing climate friendly activities in facility operations, and elevating their climate leadership by inviting their community to do the same.

The National Medical Association’s Annual Convention

The National Medical Association (NMA)’s Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly is acclaimed as the nation’s foremost forum on medical science and African American health. Each year, African American physicians and other health professionals from across the country convene to participate in the scholarly exchange of medical advances, discuss health policy priorities, and to share experience through networking opportunities. Through NMA’s 25 Scientific Specialty Sections, the Convention attracts the broadest spectrum of African American physicians, academicians and scientists in the country. The program opens on Saturday August 1st with special sessions and workshops, and continues through Wednesday August 5th.
