More than 100 physicians from region one of the United States National Medical Association (NMA), are expected to converge in Montego Bay next year, for the association’s annul conference.
The five-day meeting, which will be held at the Half Moon Resort from May 24 to May 28, will cover various health topics while allowing for the conduct of the regular business of the organization.
Members of the association recently called on Consul General to New York, Dr. Basil Bryan, at his office in midtown Manhattan, to provide him with details of the meeting.
Dr. Dexter McKenzie, a Jamaican and chair of the Provident Clinical Society, which is an affiliate of the NMA, noted that the conference would provide a wonderful opportunity for the members to familiarize themselves with the tourism sector as well as investment opportunities on the island.
In pledging his support of the event, Dr. Bryan noted that the conference represented the kind of strategic linkages necessary for the development of Jamaica.
Region one of the NMA comprises the Connecticut/Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Vermont and the Virgin Islands chapters.
The organization is more than 100 years old and has a nationwide enrollment of over 25,000 members, which according to Dr. McKenzie, is “a greatly underestimated economic force.”
