Welcome to NHMA

Established in 1994 in Washington, DC, the National Hispanic Medical Association is a non-profit association representing the interests of 45,000 licensed Hispanic physicians in the United States. NHMA is dedicated to empowering Hispanic physicians to be leaders who will help eliminate health disparities and improve the health of Hispanics. NHMA's vision is to be the national leader to improve the health of Hispanic populations.

NHMA is planning to launch its Regional Steering Committee Structure in 2013 with the West, Southwest, Midwest, Northeast and Southeast Conferences and Networking Receptions. NHMA is also starting Mentoring Programs starting with its Scholars who have been provided scholarships by our Foundation and its partners; and our Council of Residents - whose mentoring program is supported by the US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health. 

We welcome partners interested in improving the health of Hispanic populations across the nation join us in this exciting effort to build our networks. If you are interested in serving on our Steering Committees call us.

NHMA Continues to Team with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services about the 2012 Immunization Campaign at the NHMA 17th Annual Conference

NHMA supports The Center for Disease Control and Prevention'€™s efforts to spread information about the flu vaccine in order to increase immunizations among Hispanic and African American and poor populations.

NHMA was awarded a grant in 2011 to convene regional Leadership Forums for providers, educating providers on use of practice e-health reminders and fact sheets, and to identify how Hispanic physicians can convince patients and families to get immunized.  NHMA held those forums with HHS Regional Directors and public health leaders, Congressmember Jackson Lee and the president of the Houston Hispanic Medical Association and the National Medical Assocition local chapter with community leaders and physicians in Houston; followed by events in NYC, Atlanta, Kansas City and ending in El Paso with Congressman Reyes.

NHMA is again collaborating with the National Medical Association and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health and the Regional HHS Office, and local health department for this  "Fight against Flu Campaign." to educate physicians through webinars and Special Session at our Annual Conference in April to discuss experience from medical practices in our communities to increase the rte of immunizations among Hispanics. Please join us at the Conference. See the Home Page of this website to register NOW.
