Serving Doctors and Their Patients in Southern Nevada
Nevada State Medical Association
Nevada’s pioneer physicians organized the Nevada State Medical Association (NSMA) in 1875, only 11 years after Nevada’s admission to the United States. These physicians served the medical and public health needs of Nevada pioneer families and visitors. They created the NSMA to share the latest medical knowledge and the collaborate on best practice for their patients. The NSMA began meeting annually in 1904 to identify and address the needs of Nevada physicians and their patients.
THE CLARK COUNTY MEDICAL SOCIETY ALLIANCE (CCMSA) was officially chartered with the Nevada State Medical Association Alliance (NSMAA) and the national affiliate the American Medical Association Alliance (AMAA) in 1949. CCMSA is a non-profit service organization comprised of spouses of members of the Clark County Medical Society and the American Medical Association. Primarily a service organization, CCMSA focuses on health-related needs in the community, initiating their own projects or providing volunteer hours and monetary assistance to charitable organizations or groups. Members’ special interests are also accommodated, with groups organized on subjects such as parenting, literature, food, and crafts. When called upon by the Clark County Medical Society, CCMSA also provides them with support on their projects.
