has been around for more than 30 years. Medical
broadcasting pioneers such as Dr. Art Ulene of NBC's
Today show and Dr. Timothy Johnson of ABC news are just
a few of the influential broadcasters who have helped
shape our organization. Even today, we can claim the

writing/editing trainers, and public relations experts.
cornerstone of the NAMC experience is the annual Medical
Communications Conference held annually by the American
Medical Association in various venues throughout the
country. The roles of NAMC and the AMA are very closely
intertwined throughout the conference, as many of our
members serve as course faculty. The convention is one
of the most cost-efficient training venues in existence,
where one can receive instruction from top-flight
teachers for a mere fraction of the cost of private
sessions! Another valuable aspect of the convention is
the opportunity to network and form friendships with
colleagues who share your interests. Many very
successful collaborative projects have come out of the
meetings over the years!

professionals to be proactive with the media. Now more
than ever in today's "wild wild west" of media sources,
it is critically important for the public (or our
patients!) to receive accurate information from
professionals they trust. NAMC is your resource to
help you communicate in a friendly, polished and
professional manner. Remember, if YOU don't lead the
way, someone else will! Join us today! It will be the
best career investment you'll ever make.
