Norfolk State University will be the site of the National Society of Allied Health annual conference March 16-18. This year’s conference theme is “Health Promotion and Wellness in the Allied Health Professions.”
The National Society of Allied Health (NSAH) is a membership organization of historically black colleges and universities with schools or programs in allied health. It was established in 1974 by four African American academic leaders in allied health and nursing who were unable to access membership in majority associations. This 501 © 3 organization is committed to improving the health status of African Americans and economically disadvantaged populations through research, education, employment and community services. Meetings are held annually where faculty, students and clinicians share best practices for addressing health disparities, education and practice.
Membership comprises nearly 100 faculty, students and clinicians. As a voluntary group, NSAH approves its leadership through majority vote that includes a president, executive director, secretary, treasurer and board of directors. During its three decades of existence, many organizational members have become university presidents, provosts, deans, chairpersons and other leaders in the health care community. The organization produces a publication, titled, “The Journal of the National Society of Allied Health” that is published annually.
