35th Annual Andrew A. Best, MD Senior Recognition Banquet

The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is the oldest and largest medical student organization committed to serving underserved communities. SNMA develops initiatives aimed at eliminating health disparities among minority communities and strives to make concerted efforts to raise the levels of minority student recruitment, admissions, and retention in medical schools. The East Carolina University Brody School of Medicine Chapter of SNMA is an organization focused on increasing the number of culturally responsible minority physicians that excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively affect the community. As an inclusive student organization, we serve the entire community of eastern North Carolina.  SNMA is not only a pivotal organization in the school of medicine but also the ECU community at large.

This marks the 35th year of honoring Dr. Andrew A. Best, an important contributor to the advancement of minorities in medical education throughout eastern North Carolina. To further his legacy, we are celebrating the graduating SNMA members of the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. Banquet guests will enjoy a delicious dinner and a powerful presentation. We are asking you to support the efforts of the SNMA by contributing at one of the levels outlined on the enclosed contribution form. Several of the identified contribution levels provide you with tickets to the banquet. Individual tickets may also be purchased at the cost of $35 per ticket.
