I am deeply honored and pleased to accept the position as your eighty-third president of the Auxiliary to the National Medical Association, Inc., (ANMA). I have been an active member of the ANMA over a decade serving nationally and locally.
I am grateful that you have entrusted me to lead this historical organization which has a legacy of great leadership, community service and a commitment to reducing health disparities in the African American Community.
I pledge my commitment to continue the great traditions of this fine organization through outreach activities to raise the awareness of health issues through education, prevention, access to quality health care, and to increase membership.
My theme for the 2021-2022 year is:
“A Call for Action against COVID-19, Opioid Misuse, HIV/AIDS, and Vaping in the African American Community”
There are several maladies that have affected the African American Communities and have had adverse effects on the entire population including our youth, young adults and the elderly. I have focused on four major health maladies that are causing serious life threatening conditions which are debilitating members of the community causing tremendous loss of life.
- Opioid Misuse
The ANMA will take a leading role in our communities with “A call for action through education awareness, prevention and treatment”. Our six regions throughout our auxiliaries will serve as validators for use of the Covid-19 vaccination; plan and execute seminars, and webinars at regional meetings, the ANMA Convention, schools, community centers, and churches to combat these four major maladies.
Thank you for your confidence and I look forward to working with the ANMA Board of Directors, our members and our communities.
