Not sure if many people know this, The National Medical Association was founded to honor and guide African-American men and women who are in the fields of medical, health and science studies. Also in the provision of resources and medical education to the masses.
Edith P. Mitchell became the National Medical Association (NMA) 116th president where she will oversee, continue to advocate the NMA's mission and purpose to advance African-American men and women physicians and scientists.
Mitchell began her studies in medical science at the Tennessee State University in Nashville and the Medical College of Virginia, where she graduated and furthered her education at the Meharry Medical College.
Upon her presidency at the National Medical Association, Edith made a statement about the state of healthcare in America.
“There is still much work to be done with regards to disparities in medical treatment. I believe that we can all work together and make great strides to address better health care in our nation.”
Congrats to Dr. Mitchell!
