Established in 1994 in Washington, DC, The National Hispanic Medical Association is a 501c6 nonprofit membership and advocacy association, representing the interests of Hispanic physicians in the U.S. The NHMA’s mission is to improve the health of Hispanics and other underserved.
 
I applaud the work done to develop our National Health Care Security Strategy, especially, in this era, with the global health community having a heightened awareness of the potential pandemic threats lurking in our midst.
