Since 1946, more than 30,000 minority medical students and physicians have received awards from NMF. With the support of Alumni, friends, and partners, particularly Kaiser Permanente, NMF is building a robust Alumni Network.
Some NMF Alumni are practicing physicians beginning their careers who will help shape the healthcare of the future. Still others are national physicians-leaders, eminent practitioners, medical researchers, and policy makers. They are the teachers, mentors, and heroes of the next generation of underrepresented minority physicians.
Through NMF and Alumni-sponsored events and other activities, a network will be brought into active partnership with NMF to:
- Strengthen and expand programs,
- Support regional Galas, and
- Provide financial support for the organization.
