UC's Student National Medical Association Wins Community Service Award

Cincinnati--The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine's Student National Medical Association (SNMA) received a Community Service Award at its National Conference for two local programs aimed at bringing medical education to high school and elementary school students.

The local SNMA chapter was honored for its Youth Science Enrichment Program (YSEP) and the Health Professions Recruitment Exposure Program (H-PREP).

The programs began in 1994 as a way for the local chapter to give something back to the community. H-PREP provides information for Cincinnati high school students interested in a medical career. For YSEP, local SNMA members visited second-grade students at Vine Street Elementary throughout the 1997-98 school year, teaching children about human organ systems.

The medical school chapter competed with 15 other chapters for the award.
