NW AHEC Supports Premedical Student Conference

From January 22 to 24, 2010, the Wake Forest University School of Medicine Chapter of the SNMA (Student National Medical Association) hosted the 3rd Annual Conference whose purpose is to increase the number of minority medical school applicants and matriculates to the four medical schools in North Carolina to more accurately reflect the rich diversity of the communities in which they will ultimately serve. Northwest AHEC and the NC AHEC Program have been supportive of this student organization and particularly of this conference. Northwest AHEC leaders participated in both the student conference and the leadership meeting by providing the keynote address and leading workshops.
