Each year, the National Medical Association (NMA) hosts one of the nation’s leading forums on medical science, African American health and reducing racial and ethnic health care disparities. Beginning July 30, African American physicians and other health professionals will convene during the five-day convention to participate in the exchange of medical advances, and to discuss health policy priorities.

The NMA is the largest and oldest national organization representing African American physicians and their patients. The organization works diligently to serve as the collective voice of African American physicians, and to eliminate disparities in health care in the US.

Reducing racial and ethnic disparities is essential for improving the quality of care for beneficiaries, and reducing health-related spending. Which is why we are so pleased to announce that Alliant’s own QIN-QIO vice president and chief medical officer, Dr. Adrienne Mims, has been selected to speak at this vital conference, themed “True North Toward Health Care Equity” this year. Dr. Mims will present a lecture on the shifting healthcare landscape, and the implementation of value-based payment modifiers to industry leaders, from across the country.

We are proud to have Dr. Mims as a member of our Alliant family. She is a tireless champion of quality and equity in health care, and her wisdom will be well-shared at such an imperative event – and we wholeheartedly congratulate her on the achievement.
