The CCPA Difference
The Cook County Physicians Association was founded in order to address racial, political, and economic problems in the delivery of medical care and education, especially as they impact African Americans.
Among the goals of the Cook County Physicians Association is the desire to increase the number of African American physicians, as this is one of the critical issues of this time.
Access to networking events and community service activities throughout the Chicagoland area. The CCPA sponsors annual community events and maintains a vibrant profile in areas it seeks most to serve.
CCPA awards students scholarships in the hopes that it will not only help defray the cost of their education; but it will also allow them to see the importance of continuing to give back.
A message from our President
Welcome! I want to personally thank you for visiting the Cook County Physicians Association (CCPA) website! The CCPA and the Prairie State Medical Society are the local and state chapters, respectively, of the National Medical Association (NMA).
We encourage current and prospective members to learn more about CCPA, and we hope you are able to become more involved in our committees and activities such as the mentorship program, scholarship committee, and government/community affairs committees.
As president of CCPA, I am pleased to invite local physicians to become members of CCPA and NMA. I encourage you to join us now in our mission to help in our local and national efforts to increase the number of African-American physicians and all underrepresented minority physicians to advocate for access to quality health care for all individuals, especially those who live in underserved communities.
