National Medical Association Urges Congress to Deliver on Health Care
Date:1/25/2010

WASHINGTON, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "America's health care problems did not change when the polls closed in Massachusetts last week, therefore we still need Congress to act on Health Care Reform now", insists Dr. Willarda Edwards, President of the National Medical Association (NMA).

"The focus on the economy and jobs is necessary and proper, however insurance coverage and addressing wellness care versus sick care is what health care reform will bring to all Americans.   We must address this in order to make this a healthier nation," she continued.   "We urge Congressional leaders to stay at the negotiating table until a meaningful resolution to the current impasse is reached. We have all worked too hard to get this far for us to turn back now."

"The NMA remains committed to working with the Congress, the White House, and all other stakeholders to make reform a reality," concluded Dr. Edwards.

Founded in 1895, the National Medical Association is the nation's oldest and largest medical association representing the interests of more than 30,000 African-American physicians and their patients. The NMA repeatedly advocates for policies that would assure equitable and quality health care for all people.
