My Convention Story by Rose E. Blackburn, M.D., M.B.A.
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.

Highlight from the History of the NMA
Medico-Chirurgical Society of the District of Columbia. Formed by a small group of white and Negro physicians in 1884, it is the oldest Negro medical society in America. It was the outgrowth of the refusal of the Medical Society of the District of Columbia to accept Negro physicians as members.
