Nebraska Medical Association Speaker’s Bureau

NAMA Logo 

In coordination with the Nebraska Medical Association, and the Nebraska Health and Human Services System, a Women's Health Speaker Bureau is being formed. Throughout the year the agencies receive numerous requests for physician speakers, and we want you to help us a build diverse group to speak on women's health in Nebraska.

As a volunteer speaker, you will always have the option of declining an invitation.  We will not ask you to travel to another community unless you indicate that you are willing to do so.  We regret that we do not have funding to reimburse you for travel expenses. 

If you are interested, please read the Welcome Letter and fill out the Speaker Form below.
