National Medical Association Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly

Past Highlights

My Convention Story

“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.”

– Roland Matthews, MD

“I rely on the organization’s leadership to convene critical discussions focused on health policy, healthcare reform and the challenges facing physicians not only in clinical practice, but those in leadership in health plans, academia, pharmaceutical/ biotechnology industry and public health. NMA convention is also a great time to connect with my medical school alumni, friends and colleagues.”

– Rose Blackburn, M.D., MBA

My Convention Story by Vivian Pinn, M.D.

I haven’t missed an annual NMA convention since I attended my first over 40 years ago. While I belong to many other professional organizations, NMA is unique in providing both excellent science in addition to health policy and medical information specific for minority populations and physicians of color. Plus – the ability to network with physicians with similar concerns AND former students and residents is something I would not miss!
