Welcome to the Legendary Region 2 of the Student National Medical Association! Region 2 is one of the largest regions in the organization with over 18 active SNMA chapters and 6 active MAPS chapters. Our members are very active in their respective communities, executing a variety of programming including mentoring and pipeline programs, educational events, voter registration drives and clinical services. In the past year, Region 2 had multiple chapters receive community service grants and awards within the national organization. In addition many chapters have been recognized locally for the amazing work that they continue to do. This year our region has the potential to do much more. The Student National Medical Association provides students with a chance to connect with medical students, undergraduates and physicians with common interests. I am excited for the opportunity to serve as this year's Regional Director with the chance to work with the amazing group of medical students, undergraduates and physicians within my region. The focus this year is Mental Health awareness and I can only imagine the creative and beneficial programs that regional members will be working on. Come join us at our regional conferences and events. Feel free to engage with us, we look forward to it. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time.
Yours in SNMA,
Region II Director 2016-2018
