WELCOME TO CREIGHTON'S SNMA!

 

Welcome to the Home Page for the Creighton chapter of the Student National Medical Association.  I am excited to start off the year with a mix of officers and members from last year and new first year medical students!  We have already hit the ground running with an officer retreat planned for September 4th.  The goals and objectives of Creighton SNMA mirror those of the national SNMA which include:

SNMA is off to a great start in accomplishing these goals during the 2010-2011 school year through the following activities: 

Our first service project of this year is the BET Wrap it Up event, where we will be testing Omaha teens for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia.  Omaha has a disproportionately high rate for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia.   This project aligns with National SNMA protocol for Sexual Awareness.

The Youth Health Extravaganza, an event that SNMA has participated in for over eight years, has been cancelled this year.  There are still many areas in which the community can benefit from our help, so we will continue on in the spirit of service. 

 As president, my goal for this year is to continue to build on the strong foundation created by past presidents and members of SNMA while improving for the future.  More specifically my goals for the year are:

 As immediate past president Antonio Betanzos stated, “Our success begins now, with each other”.  Along with our new leadership team I hope to carry this spirit into the 2010-2011 year.  For more information please see our national website at www.snma.org.
