About NHMA Events


NHMA offers several events throughout the year ranging from Region Policy Forums, Congressional Briefings on Hispanic Health, and our largest event, NHMA's Annual Conference, in the Spring in Washington, DC.

These events are a great way to get connected with other healthcare professionals and learn about various topics in the health field. We encourage members and non-members to get involved in their communities and one of those ways is to attend one of NHMA's events.
