Brown University SNMA Chapter

Congratulations to the Brown University SNMA Chapter for winning SNMA National and Region VII Chapter of the Year for the 2019-2020 School year! From co-hosting this past year’s RLI and organizing successful pipeline programming to fundraising and community service outreach, this chapter exemplified the national mission statement of support to URM pre-medical and medical students, service addressing community needs, and fostering clinically excellent, culturally competent, and socially conscious physicians.


Announcing the 2019-2020 Region VII MAPS Chapter of the Year:

Northeastern University MAPS Chapter



Congratulations to the Northeastern MAPS for winning Region VII MAPS Chapter of the Year! This past school year, the Northeastern University MAPS chapter saw one of its most successful years. In collaboration with their parent SNMA chapter at Boston University School of Medicine, they coordinated the Fall 2019 MAPS Day. At this event, students from Boston University, Boston College, and Northeastern University were invited to the Boston University School of Medicine campus to tour the facilities, meet the deans, and gain advice from a panel of medical school students. This year also marked the third year of their semesterly Suturing Workshop, taught by BUSM SNMA members as well as our annual Minority Physicians Panel. Through the dedication of their executive board, they were able to take part in three new volunteering events with Community Servings, Daily Table, and Haley House, working to serve the local community and provide help to those in need.

Past Events
Regional Medical Education Conference | November 23,2019

The Regional Medical Education Conference (RMEC) was on November 23, 2019 at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. The theme for the conference was "the D.O.C is Here: Making Your Presence Known. 


The conference addressed issues affecting physicians of color such as racial discrimination, the toll of being a “model minority” on mental health, and physician burnout. We discussed how to better serve marginalized communities, including racial minorities, gender and sexual minorities, undocumented individuals, and people with histories of incarceration through the sessions, as well as taking care of ourselves while doing it. Our conference also offered more general programming such as a Suturing Workshop and a Simulation Center Workshop.

The Regional Leadership Institute (RLI) was co-hosted by the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and the Giesel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College. The event was on be on September 6-7 at the Warren Alpert Medical School.
