In May of 1922, 26 doctor’s wives from 11 states met in the Statler Hotel in St. Louis.  They recognized that a national organization was needed “to extend the aims of the medical profession through the wives of doctors to the various women’s organizations which look to the advancement in health and education, to assist in entertainment at all medical conventions, and to promote acquaintanceship among doctors’ families so that close fellowship may exist.”  The American Medical Association Auxiliary was born.

Following that lead, the Spartanburg County Medical Society Auxiliary was created in 1925 and the AMAA and SCMSA have grown to support all physicians and their spouses.  In 1997, the Auxiliary name was changed to the Alliance.  The objectives of our Alliance are to:  assist in programs of the Spartanburg County Medical Society that improve the health and quality of life in our communities; promote health education; promote legislative awareness and advocacy in accordance with SCMS; encourage participation of volunteers in activities that meet health needs; support health-related charitable endeavors; and support the family of medicine.
