Region Events

NHMA will convene its Region Policy Forums and Receptions this fall and address: “How National Healthcare Policy Impacts the Treatment of Hispanic Patients”. 

NHMA will also bring information from the national initiatives it participates in :  the CDC HIV Health Communications for Primary Care Physicians and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to discuss what is Value-Based Health Care and provide free TA resources across the nation through the TCPI (Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative) to doctors and nurses in private or in academic practice of medicine.

In addition, there will be other key topics discussed based on the NHMA Region Steering Committees planning to showcase regional priorities for health of Hispanics.

We welcome you and colleagues to join us in networking with healthcare leaders, physicians and residents, and students.

Sponsorship opportunities are available – contact Elena Rios, MD at
