Welcome to SNMA Region VIII - It's a MOVEMENT
Shakira Burton , RD
Welcome to the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) Region VIII homepage. It affords me a welcome avenue to serve as your 2016-2018 Region VIII Director. This great region spans from the historic landmarks in Delaware to the great hills of West Virginia. Although we are a relatively small region, it is my desire that we have a huge presence that is not only impactful but transformative.
As members of SNMA, we are charged with the very important task of serving as "agents of change" in our respective communities. Hence, my goals for this region are in alignment with President Christen Johnson's executive agenda: "Lighting the Way with SNMA: The Charge of Equity for All". As future doctors and leaders of tomorrow, I am passionate about collaborative leadership and serving as effective advocates and mentors for individuals residing in the countless underserved communities throughout our region. It is through service that we ourselves become better leaders! So, together, let us play, learn and grow in SNMA!
If you would like to learn more about Region VIII or are interested in getting involved on regional level, please do not hesitate to contact me or any other member of the regional executive committee.
Additionally, if you would like to support Region VIII by making a tax deductible donation, please contact our Region VIII Treasurer, Sydney Walker at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to working with you!
With sincere commitment to the cause,
Shakira W. Burton
