The planned Annual Convention and Scientific Assembly scheduled for August 1–5, 2020 in Atlanta will now be in an all virtual format. This means there will no longer be an in-person meeting this summer. Additional information will follow, but be assured that there will be excellent educational content, lively discussion and some surprise events. We will kick off the celebration of our 125th Anniversary which will continue throughout the ensuing year. You won’t want to miss it!
Aloha Camp NMA-Zing ‘Ohana,
As we continue to navigate through these anxious times, we hold strong in our belief that we will emerge from the challenges ahead of us, together as one. In Hawaii, this feeling of unity and support is rooted in our ‘ohana or family, and it is something that helps us persevere through difficult times. After 17 years of proudly providing Camp NMA-Zing for the National Medical Association, we think of you as our ‘Ohana.
Camp NMA-Zing 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19. Although we will not see you in Atlanta this year, Kama`aina Kids would like the kids to connect with their fellow campers by participating in a coloring sheet challenge. Please ask your child(ren) to color this sheet and add their own message of hope to their Camp NMA-Zing friends. Scan and email all completed work with child’s name, state and date to Yolanda Fleming at email@example.com by July 20, 2020. All messages and artwork will be compiled to share with our Camp ‘Ohana, so that kids can feel connected to their special camp friends.
