Announcements & Resources
SNMA Community Service Grant: The SNMA Community Service Grant program provides financial assistance to SNMA local chapters for service efforts. These efforts comply with the mission of the SNMA and are ideally related to national protocols. SNMA cannot fund speaker honoraria, food or travel. Chapters receiving grants will be required to submit a completed evaluation form and document the project within the Chapter Report Form upon completion. Failure to complete either form may jeopardize a chapter's ability to receive funds in the future. Projects may be chosen for presentation at the Annual National Medical Education Conference. The application for the 2014 Fall Grant Application can be fouund here. Deadline for the Fall Grant is December 1st.
It's August which means it is time to participate in the Pipeline Programs Preview.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
WHAT CAN OUR CHAPTERS DO?
SNMA chapters are encouraged to partner with local youth organizations, schools, community colleges, undergraduate institutions and post-baccalaureate programs to develop Pipeline programs. More information pertaining to these programs and their development can be found in the SNMA Pipeline Programs Manual, which can be requested from your regional Community Service Liaison or firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Be sure to apply for an SNMA National Community Service Grant to help support your Pipeline programs.
• Participate in the SNMA Pipeline Mentoring Institute (PMI) by establishing a Pipeline Academy in your community. Recognizing that many of the barriers to greater diversity within the medical profession lie within the elementary school to undergraduate education continuum, the PMI seeks to better prepare minority students for a career in the health professions through sessions on general study skills, standardized test taking skills, science preparation and age-appropriate cultural competency training.
