Who We Are

The Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society Alliance (SSVMSA) is a non-profit organization composed of members of physician families.  We are committed to creating a healthier Sacramento region by improving the lives of those in need.

What We Do

The Alliance is involved with numerous activities to support this goal, including education, community health project funding, medical student and nursing scholarships, and volunteerism (all while having fun & making friends). 

Some of the things we accomplished this year:

  • Provided $2,500 to fund Operation Shields Up, which provides face shields to first responders during the Covid- 19 pandemic.  Other Covid-19 support activities actively being planned now!
  • Organized Alliance blood drive during Covid-19 pandemic
  • Community Health Grants for 2020 were awarded in the amount of $50,500.00 for programs throughout greater Sacramento region: Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation, A. Warren McClaskey Adult Center, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento, CSERF, Mercy Housing California, Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services, St. John’s Programs for Real Change, and Society For the Blind.
  • Nursing scholarships were awarded in the amount of $13,000.00 to eight deserving nursing students from American River College, CSUS, Sacramento City College, and UC Davis.
  • Holiday Sharing Card raised over $16,000.00 benefiting: SSVMSA's Community Endowment Fund ($9,500) and SSVMS’s Medical Student Scholarship Fund ($6,500).
  • The Art of Medicine 2020 (AOM) auction, postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak, has been redesigned in an exciting new format and is planned for November, 2020
  • Distribution of 8,000 of the directory “Community Resources for Older Adults.”
  • Social Activities: “Paint and Sip family paint night”, book club, Holiday luncheon, AOM pre-parties and annual Napa wine trip to name a few.
  • Volunteering at the WEAVE center and Loaves and Fishes, looking forward to some family oriented Volunteer Days in the 2020/2021 calendar year.
  • Held a series of complimentary wellness seminars, including topics such as Nutrition, “Building Resilient Families” and “Emotional Health During the Lockdown”, group Mat Pilates sessions.

Membership in the Alliance allows you to be directly involved in our projects, activities and events; however, even if you do not have time to actively participate in our projects or can only participate occasionally, your dues are very important as they support these programs.

We are looking forward to another year of promoting health in our community and having you as a member.

Sincerely,

Alice Huang and Tricia Hunstock
