Massachusetts Medical Society: MMS Minority Affairs Section

MMS Minority Affairs Section

The Massachusetts Medical Society’s Minority Affairs Section (MAS) offers a forum for addressing the unique needs and concerns of underrepresented minority physicians and the delivery of health care to minority patients and communities. The Section’s priorities include the development of policies and initiatives that provide career advancement and leadership opportunities for minority physicians and increases participation and mentorship of underrepresented minority physicians and students in the MMS.

All active MMS members are warmly welcome to join the MAS.

The Section also offers members a chance to participate in organized medicine at both the local (MMS) and national (AMA) levels. Membership in the MAS is open to any MMS member physician or medical student with an interest in minority physicians or minority health issues.
