The National Medical Association (NMA) was founded in 1895 as a professional organization for African-American physicians. Its goals are to raise professional and educational standards, to promote cooperation among physicians, to improve the health care delivery system, to educate the public, to promote just medical laws, and to eliminate racial and religious discrimination from American medical institutions. It operates the SASATA Project under a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and a Radon and Indoor Air Education Program under a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It works to recruit African-American students into medical programs, provides information and consultation services to members, and advises and guides physicians who are interested in Federal funding.
