About Us

Nationally:

THE ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN PHYSICIANS IN THE AMERICAS (ANPA) was incorporated in 1995 for educational, scientific, charitable and social purposes as a tax-exempt non-profit organization under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

ANPA represents the professional, political and social interests of 4,000 plus physicians, dentists and allied health professionals of Nigerian birth, ethnicity or empathy in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean providing a platform for medical, scientific, political and social dialogue on issues of health within North America, the Caribbean, and Africa, pertinent to persons of descent from the Nigerian Diaspora.

Locally:

ANPA Houston was started in 2015 with over 40 physicians and health providers of various specialties in attendance during its inaugural meeting. Our goal is quite simple: to be a beacon of light within our local community extending internationally to the nation of Nigeria as we foster camaraderie amongst colleagues, mentorship programs, community awareness events, missionary endeavors, and the like. Our members are comprised of Nigerian doctors and healthcare staff in diverse fields. Come join the movement! We would love to meet you!
