Due to the ongoing global pandemic of COVID-19, our in-person events have been either postponed or transitioned to virtual platforms. Residents and council members continue to attend a robust lineup of virtual conferences, book clubs, and networking events, including upcoming Student National Medical Association (SNMA) regional conferences.
