Message from Dr. Keith Smith:


This award was created several years ago in memory of Mary Moody and her outstanding service to patients as a medical assistant. I would like for you to nominate a fellow medical assistant within the state of North Carolina whose qualities are similar to those portrayed by Mary Moody during her years of service as a medical assistant.


Various adjectives have been used to describe Mary’s qualities as a medical assistant and a person. She was felt to be loyal. She always smiled and maintained a positive attitude. She was fun, but also professional. She was enthusiastic and always went the extra mile. She was able to communicate with patients whether they were very old or very young. She treated all patients the same whether they were rich or poor. She was able to get along with all fellow employees in the office. She was always neat and prompt. She was a good listener. She was able to follow instructions carefully, and in some cases anticipate ahead of time what the doctor needed in the care of the patient/ She was always able and willing to do what was needed even though it was not necessarily “her job”. She participated with her local and state CMA chapters.


Mary Moody Award submissions for 2024 will open this fall. Check back soon for more information.

Reel Recovery

Each year the NCSMA President selects a community service project for NCSMA. This year Cameron Smith, CMA (AAMA) has chosen Reel Recovery, a group founded by a group of avid fly-fishers after they recognized how beneficial this activity was for a friend battling brain cancer. The non-profit is a nationwide organization that conducts fly-fishing retreats for men recovering from all types of cancer. These retreats are free for the participants. The retreats offer an opportunity not only to learn a new skill, but to share stories, form friendships and help them to regain hope as they confront the realities involved in the challenges they face recovering from cancer. At each state sponsored meeting funds will be collected and tallied culminating with these funds being donated to Reel Recovery at the end of the year. Your chapter can get involved too! Simply contact President Cameron Smith at to learn how to donate.
