    Registration Form

    The Student National Medical Association is proud to announce our annual National Advocacy Forum from March 10-11, 2013 in Washington, D.C.! The purpose is to equip medical and premedical student participants with advocacy skills specifically targeted towards minority health policy at the national and local level. This two day forum will enable student participants to understand both the role of the medical student & physician in health reform, as well as potential solutions to issues of health equity, with emphasis on practical skills. We will achieve this through skills-based workshops, engaging panel discussions, and critical reflection of personal agency as physicians and students in advocacy work. These events will culminate in scheduled meetings with legislators on Capitol Hill, as students will lobby for specific pieces of legislation deemed critical to the mission of SNMA and wider imperative to eliminate health inequities in the United States. The theme of this year's National Advocacy Forum is Advancing Policy, Leading a Community: The medical student, health equity, and advocating for change. Please join us this time around as we look forward to an exciting and successful National Advocacy Forum!

    The deadline has passed, but please continue to register. Once capacity has been met, we will notify late registrants by email and contact you once seats become available!
