HPREP is sponsored by Northwestern’s Chapter of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA), a national student group for underrepresented minorities in medicine.  One of the major goals of SNMA is to expose younger minority students to aspects of the health care field and encourage them to pursue a career in health professions.  A means to accomplish this goal at Northwestern is by hosting the Health Professions Recruitment & Exposure Program (HPREP) immersion program this winter.
