The National Association of Medical Minority Educators, Inc. (NAMME) was established in 1975 by a group of educators concerned about the shortage of minority health care providers. The organization was established to address important issues impacting minority students. Over the years, NAMME has grown into a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization with significant representation from all of the health professions. The organization has members representing health professions institutions across the country, and continues to attract members from all health disciplines.
The National Association of Medical Minority Educators (NAMME) is the lead organization in providing informational resources, training and advocacy to stakeholders working to insure diversity in the health professions. As a national organization, NAMME is dedicated to developing and sustaining productive relationships while working to ensure racial and ethnic diversity in all of the health professions. NAMME also seeks to provide critical guidance and professional development opportunities for individuals dedicated to these efforts and the students they serve. NAMME is truly “where inclusion and diversity meets the health professions”.
