The theme of this year’s Colloquium is The Health of the Black Family and will focus on clinical, policy, and social determinants of health and their impact on individual opportunities to earn a good living, live and work in a safe and healthy environment, and effectively use available social service and health care resources to optimize and maximize health care and disease prevention. Additionally, our signature NMA Awards will also be presented to leaders in health equity.
