Testimonials – 2013 CHAAMP

A special thanks for all our participants this year at the CHAAMP Conference. Thanks for your kind words

Thank you and the Board again for hosting a wonderful conference that was filled with so much history, knowledge and resources about African American not only in the medical profession but engaging our youth in science and health professions.

African American health professionals, from doctors to dentists to nurses to lay midwives to public health professionals, have played a major role in improving the health of all persons in the US, especially those of color; yet little is known about these contributions. This free conference, sponsored by the University of Virginia and hosted by Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences (2101 Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC) is designed to disseminate resources focusing on the history and impact of African American health professionals, particularly in the 20th century.
