2016 SNMA Region V Conference on November 18-20, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio at The Ohio State University College of Medicine campus:

Region V is home to sixteen medical and twenty pre-medical student chapters and over 600 members. The theme for the 2016 SNMA Region V Conference is Building the EMPIRE: Education, Motivation, Prevention, Integration, Research, and Equity. A series of workshops and seminars will take place throughout the weekend to highlight this theme. These events include topics such as the importance of mentorship, community and mental health, health disparities, working with underserved populations, the physician-patient relationship, social justice, and navigating the medical field as an underrepresented minority student. Additionally, we hope to expose students to career opportunities available in the medical field, various areas of medical education, and opportunities that the Ohio State University College of Medicine has to offer.

The Recruitment Fair portion of the SNMA Region V Conference will take place on November 19th in the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at 460 W 10th Ave, Columbus OH 43210. 

Each year the Region V Conference culminates in a community service project. This year we will increase the scope by hosting a Community Health and Education Fair to benefit the Columbus Community.  During the fair volunteers will assist with guided tours, logistics, and various health screenings.  The event will be held November 19th from 9am- 12pm at the King Arts Complex, a beautiful facility located in East Columbus—an underserved and largely minority community.  Transportation and instructions will be provided to participants. We are strongly guided by Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous quote “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” We hope to improve healthcare access and information, if only in a small way, by providing these screening, health, and educational services.
