Frank K. Jones, MD, M.P.H., FACS, Atlanta Medical Association President

president’s message

Welcome to our new website for the Atlanta Medical Association.  My name is Frank K. Jones, M.D. and I am proud to serve as the president of this phenomenal organization.  I stand on the shoulders of several great leaders that have served before me. We have a very rich history and a prosperous future. We are the largest local chapter and we are an award-winning chapter of the National Medical Association. In addition, we are the oldest, local, Black medical society in America. 

My major goal for the organization is to broaden the influence and impact we have on the community, and to increase the identity that we have in the community. I want this website to reflect our strategic vision for the future…we want to be innovative, informative, and involved.

we’re ready for the challenge!

The Atlanta Medical Association is ready for the challenge. As we navigate this difficult time, we will emerge with a new image. Part of that new imagery will include this new website, new programming and new initiatives.  A new image does not mean that we have sacrificed any traits or traditions that we hold dear. We will continue to be strong advocates for our patients and for our members.   “Somehow, within this unforgiving terrain, we will continue to root ourselves in the African American community like the healing, African aloe plant…strong, adaptable and enduring” as we prepare for life with a new normal.

Welcome to our website and welcome to the Atlanta Medical Association.
