On October 16, 1895, the National Medical Association (NMA) was founded by African American physicians as an alternative to the white-only American Medical Association. Robert F. Boyd (left) was the organization’s first president and Daniel Hale Williams served as vice president. The organization’s mission was to combat racism and segregation in the medical field, both for medical professions and their patients.
