Alliance has a proud history of building healthy communities across our state. Here’s a snapshot of our progress:
1922: The Auxiliary of the American Medical Association forms in St. Louis
• 1925: Mrs. Francis A. Long of Madison, Nebraska proposes an Auxiliary for
doctor’s wives with the purpose “to advance, through the wives of doctors, the
aims of the medical profession, to assist the entertainment at all medical
conventions and promote acquaintances among the doctors’ families.”
• 1926: The House of Delegates of the Nebraska State Medical Association
recognizes the Auxiliary to the Nebraska State Medical Association. There were
225 paid members @ $1.00 - $225.00. There were six counties organized: Pawnee,
Madison, Stanton, Pierce, Antelope, Adams, Merritt, Phelps and Fremont.
• 1927: 100% membership with 7 more local auxiliaries formed: Dodge County,
Omaha, Holt County, Jefferson County, Fairbury, Lincoln County and Washington County. A donation of $100 was given to the Nebraska University Hospital for the Children’s
Sun Parlor via the Tuberculosis Association.
• 1948 The Nebraska Medical Foundation was established. Over the years fund
raising by the auxiliaries provided for scholarships for physicians in training
• 1970s: Name changes to Nebraska Medical Association Auxiliary following the
American Medical Association Auxiliary’s lead.
• 1993: Name changes to Nebraska Medical Association Alliance in 1993, believing
the name, “Auxiliary” was a deterrent to male, career and younger members.

and advocate for a healthier Nebraska.
