NHMA Chapters

In 2013, the NHMA Board of Directors established six regions, under the leadership of a Chairperson who worked with the NHMA staff to coordinate Fall NHMA Policy Forums and to expand NHMA premier membership.

This year, 2020, NHMA Chapter Policy Forums, under the leadership of a Chairperson and a Steering Committee (medical societies, NHMA Council of Young Physicians, NHMA Council of Residents, LMSA medical students, and other health care providers and community leaders) have started and will continue throughout the year.  NHMA staff coordinates the funding, logistics and speakers with the Chapter chairpersons.

The topics this year range from Public Charge and immigrant health, heart disease, diabetes or HIV and Health Reform policies for Latinos.

The purpose of this structure is to build participation opportunities with NHMA Members and Partners, and to provide physicians, health care providers, and community leaders with updated information about policies and programs that impact local Hispanic healthcare and health equity.
