National Medical Association Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly

Virtual Camp NMA-zing

Aloha Camp NMA-Zing ‘Ohana,

As we continue to navigate through these anxious times, we hold strong in our belief that we will emerge from the challenges ahead of us, together as one. In Hawaii, this feeling of unity and support is rooted in our ‘ohana or family, and it is something that helps us persevere through difficult times. After 17 years of proudly providing Camp NMA-Zing for the National Medical Association, we think of you as our ‘Ohana.

Camp NMA-Zing 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19. Although we will not see you in Atlanta this year, Kama`aina Kids would like the kids to connect with their fellow campers by participating in a coloring sheet challenge. Please ask your child(ren) to color this sheet and add their own message of hope to their Camp NMA-Zing friends. Scan and email all completed work with child’s name, state and date to Yolanda Fleming at yfleming@nmanet.org by July 20, 2020. All messages and artwork will be compiled to share with our Camp ‘Ohana, so that kids can feel connected to their special camp friends.

Virtual Tours

We carefully planned for Camp NMA-Zing 2020 in Atlanta. Since we will not be able to visit the attractions in person, please help your child explore virtual visits to excursion sites by clicking on the links below:

We will be thinking of our Camp NMA-Zing ‘Ohana this summer. We wish you and family all the best in health and happiness.

My Convention Story by Roland Matthews, M.D.

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.
