Welcome to SNMA Region IX


My name is Hope A. Taitt and it is my pleasure to serve as the 2013-2015 Region IX Regional Director!

Region IX is comprised of the states of New York and New Jersey and is filled with students who are committed to addressing the needs of minority medical students and minority premedical students with an emphasis on community involvement and social awareness. Our region consists of 20 SNMA chapters and even more MAPS chapters who actively fulfill the mission of the SNMA at their schools and in their communities.

Our motto "Go Hard or Go Home" encapsulates the dedication of each and every member of Region IX who not only strives for academic excellence but also strives to be a leader. With the 50th anniversary of SNMA rapidly approaching, our goals are to further promote unity and leadership within Region IX. It is our aim that the support systems currently in place will be strengthened for the next group of leaders.

If you would like to know how to become more involved in Region IX, please feel free to contact myself or any of the other regional e-board members.

Yours in SNMA,

Hope A. Taitt
