Elections Committee Seeks Future SNMA Leaders

Posted By National President-Elect and Elections Committee Chair, Friday, November 21, 2014

 

In The Future of Public Health, it was argued that "today, the need for leaders is too great to leave their emergence to chance." Nearly 30 years later that sentiment is still viable. We all possess innate abilities suitable to be a leader, however, leadership is a process. We can capitalize on these abilities while identifying areas of challenge through the process of leadership.

SNMA believes in the promotion of the professional development of its membership to ensure that members have the greatest potential of serving as future leaders within the medical field and beyond. As such, the National Elections Committee is dedicated to providing leadership development and opportunities to all SNMA members through programmatic initiatives.

One such commitment is the continuation of the Future Leadership Project (FLP) this year. In its fourth cycle, the FLP program is designed for members to effectively learn and actively develop their personal leadership skills and leadership style.

Members can learn more about the program through several leadership workshops at the Annual Medical Education Conference (AMEC) from April 1-5, 2015 in New Orleans, LA. Leadership opportunities and training are also available through our National Leadership Institutes (NLIs). The next NLI, Florida Health Disparities Summit, will be from January 9-11, 2015 at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL.

The existence of SNMA would not be possible without courageous visionary leaders. The sustainability of our organization is dependent on us. As members, it is our duty to continue leading this organization with passion and exuberance.

The National Elections Committee is excited to announce the opening of the General Elections process. Information packets and application can be found here. Members interested in pursuing national leadership are encouraged to complete the National Officer and Committee Interest Form. This provides the Elections Committee the opportunity to identify interested members and offer guidance to them through this process. Please contact the Elections Committee (presidentelect@snma.org) with any questions. We look forward to working with you!

SNMA Registers Voters Through Each One, Reach One Campaign

Posted By Health Policy and Legislative Affairs Committee Co-Chairs, Thursday, October 30, 2014

      

Mid-term elections are just around the corner and the SNMA Health Policy and Legislative Affairs (HPLA) Committee is urging members to get involved in voter registration. Our Each One, Reach One Campaign, does just that, as a part of Rock the Vote, which has registered millions of new voters since 1990.

The 12,000 Americans who reach age 18 each day in the U.S. are poised to make a significant impact at the polls, but they must be registered to vote. Once you register to vote and/or update your voter registration information with your state elections board, the HPLA Committee asks that you reach out and register at least one other person to vote in the upcoming election.

The Each One, Reach One campaign will run through Election Day on November 4, 2014. So, there’s still time for your chapter to register voters. Partner with local media, community organizations and student groups in your area and take advantage of social media.

Each passing day represents an opportunity to get involved. So, take advantage of the HPLA Committee online resource package that contains a wealth of resources to get your chapter started or click here to check out this online registration tool. It’s time for Each One of us to Reach One to Rock the Vote!

Look for upcoming “Grand Rounds” with more information about member benefits, AMEC 2015 in New Orleans, other SNMA programs and much more. If you have an idea for “Grand Rounds,” email: marketing@snma.org.

 Our Annual Medical Education Conference (AMEC) is just around the corner. The 2015 conference will be held April 1-5, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.

Our SNMA mission states that we aim "... to increase the number of clinically excellent, socially conscious, and culturally competent physicians." AMEC 2015 will indeed uplift our mission by educating future physicians about the healthcare needs of marginalized groups in the population that need and seek quality healthcare and empower our doctors to effectively provide care to all patient groups. 

With the theme of “Unsilencing the Unheard and the Underserved,” AMEC 2015 will explore the health disparities among the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender populations and Immigrants/Refugees, as well as the crisis of the lack of minority men entering the field of medicine. Emerging and future doctors who attend the conference will have the opportunity to discuss topics about which they would otherwise not have access within the medical school setting. These discussions will enable them as physicians to render suitable and appropriate care to underserved populations. 

Early registration is now in progress with discounts available at all levels of member registration through November 30th. Click here to register for AMEC 2015.

Johns Hopkins Features SNMA BASE Program in Magazine Cover Story

Posted By DaShawn A. Hickman, Friday, October 17, 2014

DaShawn A. Hickman - Region V Director and Regional Director to the Executive Committee of the SNMA B

The SNMA Chapter at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is attracting attention. Highlighted recently in the university’s Dome magazine, the chapter is featured for its outstanding work through the Brotherhood Alliance for Science Education (BASE) program. Mentors, like Robert Wardlow who appeared in a photo on the magazine’s cover, work with young men, particularly those from nearby Paul Laurence Dunbar High School.

 Johns Hopkins recognizes that the SNMA and its programs, including BASE program have been instrumental in attracting minority students and boosting enrollment. In fact, the school has seen enrollment increase by 45 percent for minority first year medical students and 38 percent among all medical students since 2009. These shifts show that the SNMA is improving outcomes among underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, such as African-Americans, blacks, Hispanic, Latino and Native Americans.

 The BASE program is devoted to encouraging minority men, while increasing the recruitment, admission and retention of young minority males in higher education and the medical fields. BASE strives to unite minority males around common goals and build relationships that foster a sense of brotherhood. The program focuses on mentorship, community service and empowerment, and motivation for worthwhile and attainable goals.

 Although BASE is geared towards young men and many of its mentors are men, the JHU chapter also has female mentors among its more than 100 members, like Nancy Abu-Bonsrah, who are dedicated to helping participants reach their goals.

 BASE is a part of SNMA’s Pipeline Programs that include Pre-medical Minority Enrichment and Development (PMED), Minority Association of Pre-medical Students (MAPS), Health Professions Recruitment Exposure (HPREP) and Youth Science Enrichment Program (YSEP).

 Look for upcoming “Grand Rounds” on other SNMA programs, AMEC 2015 in New Orleans preview and much more. If you have an idea for “Grand Rounds,” email: marketing@snma.org.
