Regional News

The National NAMME conference held in Long Beach, CA from September 20-24, 2017 was a huge success, bringing together health professionals, educators, student recruiters, scientists, and community members to share best practices and synergize efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in the health care workforce. The meeting was a springboard for the Western Region (WR), increasing membership by 60% and engaging members to step forward and fill critical Board positions. Thank you to our former Board members, Dr. Thomas Landefeld, Dr. Charles Alexander, Dr. Katherine Flores, and Ms. Janice Moreland for their vision and leadership. We will continue to look to you for guidance as we begin this exciting next chapter of the Western Region.

 

We are planning a Spring WR meeting via live webinar in April 2018. More details to come.
