Who We Are

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

What We Do

The Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of health in our community through education, community health project funding, medical student and nursing scholarships, as well as give volunteer support of community projects (all while having fun & making friends).  With the state and national alliances, we develop awareness, action and advocacy for quality health care legislation and actively participate in their projects.

These are some of the things we accomplished this year:

  • Community Grants for 2019 were awarded in the amount of $50.000.00 for programs throughout greater Sacramento region: Make-A-Wish Foundation, Mental Health California, Sacramento Loaves & Fishes, Stanford Settlement Center, CCHAT, Willow Clinic, Women’s Empowerment,Yes2Kollege Educational Resources.
  • 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 $21,000.00 benefiting: SSVMSA's Community Endowment Fund ($12,300) and SSVMS’s Medical Student Scholarship Fund ($6,000).
  • The Art of Medicine 2018 (AOM) auction was a huge success, bringing in over $140.000,00.  We are now actively planning for the AOM 2020!
  • Distribution of the directory “Community Resources for Older Adults.”
  • Social Activities: Monthly “Lunch Bunch”, date nights, book club, 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 2019/2020 calendar year.
  • Formed a team to support our local Colorectal Cancer 5K run.
  • Held a series of complimentary wellness seminars, including topics such as goal setting and procrastination.
