Welcome to SNMA Region IX

Welcome to Region IX,

We appreciate you visiting us. Region IX consist of NY and NJ undergraduate, graduate and medical schools. We are proud of our amazing legacy of community service and pipeline enrichment. We work hard and play hard, as you will be able to see in our photo section. We are also very passionate about the SNMA Mission of increasing the number of competitive underrepresented applicants and their retention/completion of Medical School.

We are proud of the MAPS chapters that have made their voices and strength seen very year with their constant participation in regional and national events and offices. Our SNMA Chapters have lived up to the previous theme of "Reaching back to move forward." We are sure that the theme for 2015-2016 will be something they will be just as passionate for "#BlackLivesMatter - Social, Cultural and Health Equity and Competency".

Over the last several years we have noted the increase in death of underrepresented or underserved communities by violence and/or health complications that could have been prevented. So this year we are going to educate ourselves as a region through our regional and national events so that we can go back to our respective communities and teach - "Be one Teach one". Our region has always represented through our service now we hope to represent by being the example to follow.

Enjoy your virtual visit to Region IX,
