Message from the Office for Student Diversity at JHUSOM
Johns Hopkins University’s Chapter of the Student National Medical Association works closely with the Office for Student Diversity. We have mutual goals of: (1) Supporting underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities in biomedical research and medicine. (2) Increasing the number of physicians, scientist, and researchers who are African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic, and Native Americans or from other underrepresented groups; and (3) Eliminating health disparities. SNMA programs include faculty/student mentoring events, reproductive health/STD prevention education and college preparation workshops with local high schools students, and social/networking events among students, house staff (residents, interns, and post docs), faculty, and community leaders/residents. We encourage you to join SNMA and be part of a family that leans on each other for support, celebrates milestones, and helps address health disparities.
