It gives us great pleasure to invite you to join us and other stakeholders at the 2020 Health Policy Colloquium. The Colloquium will be held March 27 – 30, 2020 in Washington, DC.

At this health policy focused forum, population health experts will address many of the issues facing patients, health care providers, and community leaders. The Colloquium will offer you an opportunity to collaborate with stakeholders to address access to essential services and improvements in health outcomes for minority populations nationally. Additionally, our signature NMA awards will also be presented to leaders in health equity.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Universal Healthcare / Medicare for All
  • Zero Nicotine Policies – Addressing Vaping as a Public Health Crisis
  • Climate Change as a Public Health Issue
  • HIV & Prep
  • Precision Medicine – NIH’s All of Us Research Program
  • Gun Violence Prevention


In light of the growing number of COVID-19 cases across the United States and based on the latest guidance from public health officials, it is with deep regret that we have decided to cancel the 21st Annual Colloquium on African American Health and Capitol Hill Day of Advocacy, scheduled for March 27-30, 2020.
