About Our Region

 

Our region spans from the historic landmarks in Delaware to the great hills of West Virginia. As members of SNMA, we are expected serve in our respective communities. In doing so, our regional initiatives will 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. 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.
