Report from the Student National Medical Association 2010 Conference
It is early Spring in Chicago and this is my first visit to the
It is only the first day of the conference and the stream of students who have come to learn about CFHI programs has been almost nonstop. This medical education conference carries the title Healthy Impact 2010: Educate, Advocate, Empower. The goal is to further the SNMA mission to support the pursuits of current and future underrepresented minority medical students and successfully train clinically excellent, culturally competent, and socially conscious physicians. The organization of the conference and its program are as impressive as the seriousness of the students.
Not even 24 hours on the ground here in Chicago, and already I have met CFHI alumni from CFHI programs in Bolivia, South Africa, and India. I look forward to the coming days and the sharing of ideas and experiences.
