Why I
Attend
Convention by Michal A. Young M. D, FAAP, FABM

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.
