Closing the Gap

There are social and ethnic disparities in our healthcare system. We know first hand and can tell stories that the delivery of healthcare is substandard. We realize that the general community does not always have the knowledge to recognize what is quality care, and the right course of treatment and recognize when the right care is not being delivered. Since this issue is so close to our hearts, we believe that we can help bridge the gap between the healthcare community and patients.

The mission of the Gateway Medical Society is a reflection of our reality. Our mission mirrors the mission of National Medical Association (NMA) mission to eradicte the disparities in healthcare. The Gateway Medical Society was established in Pittsburgh in the late 1950’s, as a component of the NMA.

Membership to Gateway is open to any physician who is licensed to practice medicine in the state of Pennsylvania. Our mission is to promote public health and the general welfare of the community. The emphasis has been on minority and disadvantaged populations. Our goal is to enhance the quality of health services, to encourage and promote effective health education; and to develop a more cohesive and effective community of health professionals.
