Welcome to Region X

I am truly honored to serve as the Regional Director for the GREAT states of Tennessee and Kentucky! Our region has a membership of over 500 medical and pre-medical students, and we are the home of one of the two founding schools of the SNMA, Meharry Medical College.

Our goals for the 2016-2017 school year is to establish a new foundation that will allow us to grow as a region and continue to further the mission statement of the SNMA: to support current and future underrepresented minority medical and pre-medical students, addressing the needs of underserved communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent and socially conscious physicians. We plan to foster opportunities for our medical and pre-medical students through community service, pipeline mentorship between our SNMA and MAPS chapters, and developing future leaders of the SNMA!

Yours in SNMA,


Petria Thompson

Region X Director

About Our Region

SNMA is made up of 10 regions around the country. An elected Regional Director oversees each region. Regional Boards are mainly comprised of the following elected regional officers: Regional Director, Assistant Regional Director, Pre-medical Liaison, Secretary, Treasurer, and Committee Chairs (corresponding to national committees). Each region hosts an annual Regional Conference at which a regional meeting is held. Each region has its own Constitution and Bylaws, which must be held in accordance with and not in violation of the Constitution and Bylaws of National SNMA. Region X is comprised of chapters from Kentucky, and Tennessee.
