The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) will hold its ninth annual Region V Regional Leadership Institute and Picnic at the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine on Saturday, Sept. 30, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., in White Hall.
SNMA is the oldest and largest medical student organization dedicated to serving the needs of underserved communities and underrepresented minority students who wish to pursue careers in the field of medicine. The organization seeks to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine and educate about health care and disparities in health care.
Each year, Region V, which includes Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, holds its Regional Leadership Institute at a medical school. This year, the event will be held at Wright State.
“We will assemble the current leadership of the region to conduct SNMA business while educating and empowering future leaders through workshops,” said Jasmine Holmes, a second-year medical student at the Boonshoft School of Medicine and president of the school’s SNMA chapter. “This is a networking event that will develop leadership not only within the Boonshoft School of Medicine SNMA chapter but also in other medical schools and among premedical undergraduate students.”
