Education, Screening and Coordination with Other Entities, Including BlackDoctor.Org, Seen As An Effective Way to Decrease Black Healthcare Inequalities
Washington, D.C. (April 21, 2014)
Members of the National Medical Association (NMA), the nation’s largest organization of African American physicians, have developed and refined an aggressive action plan to help reduce the health disparities that plague the African American community and result in an unnecessary loss of life and an annual cost to the U.S. economy of billions of dollars.
On April 17th at the second Summit on African Health in Washington, D.C., the NMA developed the plan with a number of other key organizations. These groups included the National Black Nurses Association, Aetna Insurance, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, United Black Fund, National Society of Allied Health, and the increasingly popular BlackDoctor.org.
