Community Service Committee

The Community Service Committee is responsible for seeking out and facilitating community service activities for the organization.  This year, the committee is incredibly enthusiastic about improving SNMA’s ongoing community projects as well as launching new ones.  SNMA has also partnered with several other students organizations, such as MAPS, AMSA, and the Shade Tree Clinic to provide health screenings and information throughout the Nashville area.   SNMA is also planning an organizational community service day.

The goal of the Community Service Committee is to engage the chapter in a variety of community service activities, and has set a chapter goal of four hundred community service hours.  Help us meet our goal by signing up to volunteer today.

 

African Street Festival 2012

 On Saturday, September 15, 2012 SNMA went to Nashville's 30th Annual African Street Festival to do health screenings. Hosted by the African American Cultural Alliance (AACA), the African Street Festival is a phenomenal, family-oriented festival that has grown continuously and now attracts thousands who are interested in African and African American culture. SNMA and student volunteers did free diabetes and hypertension health screenings for the participants, and educated them on heart healthy lifestyles. In total, more than sixty people were screened. This service event provided an excellent platform for medical students to work together and contribute to the Nashville Community.
