Welcome to the Cobb Institute

The National Medical Association (NMA) established the W. Montague Cobb/NMA Health Institute (Cobb Institute) to develop, evaluate, and implement strategies to promote wellness and eliminate health disparities and racism in medicine. 

The Cobb Institute conducts data-driven research, makes policy recommendations where appropriate, and serves as a resource for NMA members and the greater healthcare community. It is the preeminent repository of information about the health of African Americans.


The Cobb Institute joins the entire NMA Family in mourning the loss of distinguished NMA Past President Richard Butcher. For information on the life and career of Dr. Butcher click this link.
