Holiday Social

Our 2nd annual Holiday Social was held on November 15, 2018. Cosponsors included EVMS, SNMA and Dr. Brian Johnson, as well as our medical Society. The event was held, again, at Virginia Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center.

Medical students and medical masters students from EVMS and Hampton University were invited. The turnout was tremendous!

Community physicians were asked to depart some words of wisdom. Mr. Gemeda, VP of the department of Diversity and Inclusion of EVMS spoke as well as the president of SNMA, Shammah Okai.

The attendance this year surpassed that of last year. Again, there was ample time to enjoy the delicious food planned by Dr. Donna Lapeyrolerie, as well as time to mingle.

6th Annual Mentoring Event

October 20th marked our 6th annual mentoring event with the department of Diversity and Inclusion at Eastern Virginia Medical School. This event was a little different than previous years because it was planned by the medical students and included workshops relevant to enrolling in medical school.

As in previous years, community physicians were asked to give their individual stories and words of encouragement and guidance. Premedical students were invited to attend and participate as well.
