For the eighth year in a row, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) has partnered with the National Medical Association (NMA) to present a Professional Development Series (PDS) focusing on the clinical, policy, and social determinants of health. The NMA PDS is held as part of the CBCF’s Annual Legislative Conference which is the leading policy conference on issues impacting African Americans and the global black community.
This year’s program will address a number of important issues, recently introduced legislative proposals, and initiatives surrounding the disparities that exist with access to care, redetermination, viability of the physician workforce, physician reimbursement, maternal health and HIV/AIDS.
Established in 1895, the National Medical Association (NMA) is the largest and oldest national organization in the United States representing the interests of African-American physicians and the patients they serve. The NMA serves as the leading voice force for parity and justice in medicine and the elimination of disparities in health.
