The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is the nation’s oldest and largest organization representing the needs and concerns of underrepresented minority students. Founded in 1964, the SNMA has over 160 chapters nation wide and the membership includes over 5,000 medical students, premedical students, physicians and allied health professions students. SNMA seeks to bridge the health disparities gap through recruitment and retention of underrepresented minority students (URM). SNMA also has a strong community service and mentoring initiative by providing mentoring, health care education, science awareness and academic enrichment activities to students at the elementary, junior high, high school and college level. SNMA seeks to expand the resources available to URM students interested in the health professions. The University of Toledo College of Medicine SNMA chapter is committed to achieving these goals.
