Greetings MAPS Presidents,

Please allow us to introduce ourselves. Our names are Sarah Ann Anderson and Robert Gibson and it is our sincere pleasure to serve as your elected 2010-2011 Region IX Minority Association of Premedical Students (MAPS) liaisons.  We are both very passionate about expanding opportunities for students of color in all facets of medicine and we hope to serve in this capacity as your MAPS liaisons.

The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) has been an instrumental part of both of our medical careers thus far and it can also be instrumental in YOUR path to medicine. MAPS is the undergraduate arm of SNMA and was created to provide the appropriate and much needed support for premedical students of color.  Robert and I are very excited for this year and we have drafted a list of initiatives that we would like to accomplish for our region and these initiatives can only be achieved with YOUR effort and support.
