Welcome to Region VIII

Welcome to the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) Region VIII homepage.   

Region VIII is comprised of chapters from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Delaware. As members of SNMA, we are expected serve in our respective communities. In doing so, our regional initiatives align with the National President’s executive agenda. Along with a programmatic focus, based on community outreach and building partnerships, with other organizations that also are working to achieve health equity through advocacy and activism.

Each year we host our two Regional Conferences and participate in the Annual Philly AIDS walk along with other service initiatives. During our Regional Leadership Institute, where we officially train our leaders and general members for an effective year of leadership. At the Regional Medical Education Conference, general members will participate in didactic and clinical workshops, along with the opportunity to network with medical school and residency programs.

If you would like to learn more about Region VIII or are interested in getting involved on regional level, please do not hesitate to contact Region8director@snma.org or any other member of the regional executive committee.
