Student National Medical Association to Host Scholarship Gala

The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) will host a scholarship gala, “A Celebration of Culture,” from 6:30 p.m. to midnight Nov. 16 at the Lubbock Country Club, 3400 Mesa Road.

The scholarship banquet is a celebration of food, drinks and entertainment to respect a variety of cultures. The funds raised go directly toward financial need-based scholarships for School of Medicine students.

Last year, more than $26,000 was raised which went to two scholarships as well as building an endowment.

Cost for the event is $40 for students, $125 for individuals or $1,000 for a table of eight. The event will feature a seated dinner, silent and live auctions, photo booth and entertainment performances. Attire is cocktail or cultural dress.

SNMA is one of the nation’s oldest and largest independent, student-run organizations focused on the needs and concerns of culturally diverse medical students. Membership includes more than 8,000 pre-medical and medical students, residents and physicians nationally.

The TTUHSC School of Medicine chapter of SNMA participates in various projects including mentoring high school students, organizing a community health fair, working with the undergraduate community, and helping improve medical school curriculum and admissions.
