Cedric Dark, MD, MPH participated in a panel discussion during the Student National Medical Association’s Annual Medical Education Conference held March 31- April 4, 2010 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers in downtown Chicago, IL.
The theme of the 2010 conference was Healthy Impact 2010: Educate. Advocate. Empower. In alignment with the 2009-2010 executive agendas of President Franklin-Ford and Chair Carmen Robinson and a special focus on Healthy People 2010, this year’s events focused on education of innovations in medicine, advocacy of medical needs for underserved communities, and student empowerment to becoming successful physicians who impact their surrounding communities. In doing so, the national convention encompassed five major components of membership development: academic excellence, advocacy in our communities, career development, leadership development, and research.
