Founded in 1793, the New London County Medical Association may well be the oldest County Medical Association in the United States.  It has been the focal point for insuring the highest quality of medical care for the people of New London County.  It has also protected the right of physicians to practice medicine at the highest possible quality level.  Until 1973, the Association was managed by its members, but the increase in membership and the desire to be more active motivated NLCMA to hire an Executive Office Staff.
