What the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society Alliance Does for Our Community

Since 1931, the Sierra Sacramento Medical Society Alliance (SSVMSA,) also known as the Alliance, is a 503(c)(3) organization non-profit organization. The Alliance is composed of members who are physician families (i.e. physicians' spouses and domestic partners, physicians, residents, medical students and Friends of the Alliance) as supporters dedicated to bettering our community. In partnership with the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society (SSVMS,) we are dedicated to improving the quality of health through funding, volunteer support and education.

Maybe you know of someone helped by the Alliance:

  • A wife whose husband is a recovering stroke patient found help through the Community Resources for Older Adults directory that the Alliance publishes each year.
  • A nursing student is grateful for the financial assistance provided through the Alliance Scholarship Program.
  • Families in the Sacramento area in need of food and clothing receive support from local organizations supported by SSVMSA annual Grants.
  • Families struggling with teens affected by Autism Spectrum Diseases attended an enlightening Community Health Day presented by SSVMSA.
