This year, 5 students represented the Birmingham chapter of SNMA at AMEC, the annual SNMA meeting, in San Francisco, CA. The chapter was recognized for many achievements, including winning a Community Service Grant and 2nd Place at the Community Service Poster Session for the Integrative Healthcare Summit. Alana C. Nichols was also awarded National Member of the Year for her tireless work on both national and local levels. MAPS Liaison, Alicia Williams, was also elected to the Region IV MAPS Liaison position. For a chapter so small in number, we received great recognition from our national affiliate.
