We advocate for health equity and justice in medicine with a focus on eliminating disparities across the entire health care system. As someone who serves on the front lines of health care delivery, elected officials and policymakers need to hear your voice.
Whether you’re interested in leadership training or fulfilling continuing medical education, the New England Medical Association offers year-round events to help achieve your professional goals.
NEMA is excited to create a community to provide support and eliminate the isolation felt by many physicians and physicians in training. Through the development of a robust mentoring program, providing a dynamic career development series, and focusing on the wellness of our members, we can change the dynamics impacting how both black physicians and our patients interact with the New England health care systems.
The mentorship/career development provides NEMA members with the opportunity to connect with a mentor/mentee. Mentors and mentees are matched according to interest and will create a mentoring plan based on mutual expectations. In addition, we look to do group mentorship sessions and hold regular webinars and training to empower our members to achieve career goals.
The health/wellness committee looks to create programming that allows members to share both wins and struggles without the worry of recourse. This committee will provide programming that will focus on the wellbeing of its members and outreach to the community.
The advocacy/health equity committee is working to champion initiatives and support legislation that will advocate for issues that impact physicians, residents, and students. The work of this committee will focus on addressing issues that impact Black communities which contribute to health disparities.
We have many events coming soon and we would like you to join us.
