The WRNAMME held its Spring meeting at the time of the WAAHP Conference, i.e. 4/23-26 in San Diego, the title of which was Borders and Boundaries (Note–The WAAHP met in conjunction with the WGEA/WGSA/WOSR groups). The focus of our WRNAMME meeting was to discuss ways to increase membership for the region and as a part of that discussion discuss expanding our “minority constituencies” to include LGBTAOI, Undocumented individuals, as well as other underserved and underrepresented in medicine (and society). We had several individuals from the other groups attending the Conference come to our meeting to learn more about NAMME, in hopes of expanding our membership.
Just as a note, the two sessions at the conference dealing with Diversity were those involving our WRNAMME members. Relevant to that, it is the hope that NAMME members who are also NAAHP members will be sure to submit abstracts to the National NAAHP Conference, which is held every other year with the next one in 2016.
