Welcome to Region V

Region V is the home of 16 SNMA and 20 MAPS chapters in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Within our region, we uphold the mission of the SNMA to the fullest by supporting current and future underrepresented minority students, addressing the needs of the under-served communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent and socially conscious physicians.

Our region strives and continues to serve as the leaders within the organization as well as within their respective communities. From advocacy to community service to mentorship, the opportunity to bolster and radiate success is common within our region. Region V is always looking for diligent and innovative student leaders to enhance the goals of the region. If you would like to be involved, please don't hesitate to contact one of our regional board members. They can explain their duties, how you can become more involved with the region, and the benefit of serving the Region and the SNMA.

Additionally, if you would like to support Region V by making a donation please contact the Region V treasurer Matthew Ellis at region5treasurer@snma.org.

About Our Region

SNMA is made up of 10 regions around the country. An elected Regional Director oversees each region. Regional Boards are mainly comprised of the following elected regional officers: Regional Director, Assistant Regional Director, Pre-medical Liaison, Secretary, Treasurer, and Committee Chairs (corresponding to national committees). Each region hosts an annual Regional Conference at which a regional meeting is held. Each region has its own Constitution and Bylaws, which must be held in accordance with and not in violation of the Constitution and Bylaws of National SNMA. Region V is comprised of chapters from Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.
