We are excited to present you with the Spring 2012 issue of the JSNMA. The theme of this issue is, Targeting Youth to Improve Sexual Health Outcomes a topic that is dear to the heart of the publications committee. With the harrowing numbers of youth in our community affected by STI’s, we felt it necessary to highlight the efforts of many to inform and empower youth regarding sexual health. Also in this issue is a section specifically for our MAPS members, a dedicated body of premedical students that are an intrinsic part of our SNMA membership. Last, this issue features some of our SNMA regions exciting activities from this past year in the regional reports.
Coming into this last issue of the JSNMA signifies a bittersweet ending as National Publications Committee for me. It has truly been an honor to work with the publications committee of SNMA to expand the reach of JSNMA and I hope you enjoy both the online and PDF version of this issue that we’ve provided. I would like to personally thank you for your support and contributions to the JSNMA. Please consider participating in the publications committee for the 2012-2013 year.
