From the President

Greetings SNMA,

It is an amazing honor and privilege to serve as your National President for the 2018-2019 administrative year! I am enthusiastic about representing the Student National Medical Association.

This year's executive agenda is entitled "Strength in SNMA." It is focused on improving our existing programming and highlighting the excellence of our membership. We will also be working with other organizations that share in our mission to address health disparities and support current and future underrepresented medical students. I encourage you all to join in our SNMA B.E.A.T.S. for Health Equity Initiative as we work collaboratively on different health disparities throughout the year and participate in showcasing the SNMA brand as we highlight our chapters and members who exemplify the excellence that marks our organization.

I am excited for the work we accomplish this year in fulfilling our mission. There are many ways to get involved this year, and you can reach out to your local and regional leaders for more information on upcoming programs and initiatives. There are numerous opportunities to serve on one of our national committees. Most importantly, I look forward to seeing everyone at the next Annual Medical Education Conference set to take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from April 17-21, 2019!

I look forward to meeting many of you this year through our national programs occurring across the country, and I'm excited to see the brilliance, passion and engagement from our membership. Thank you for your continued dedication to the SNMA, and I'm excited for the amazing year ahead!

Yours in SNMA,

Gabriel Felix
55th National President, 2018-2019
