Committees

SNAP has a variety of different committees that you can be a part of. Each committee meeting is worth 1 point.

Fundraising

SNAP is the only organization that sells official Penn Nursing apparel. The fundraising committee is responsible for designing, selling, and ordering apparel as well as organizing other fundraising events. Fundraising is an important committee of SNAP because all money raised goes towards sending people to both state and national convention so that delegates do not have to pay their own way. Contact Angel Chan (ningchan@nursing.upenn.edu) or Clara Zheng (claraz@nursing.upenn.edu) if you are interested in joining. Below can find examples of some of SNAP’s current apparel.

Community Service

This committee is a resource for a group of nurses to get involved in giving back to the community through service and education. It is a great way to get involved, meet others, and to gain professional experience. Some projects that we are involved in include hosting blood drives through the American Red Cross, helping at the Mobile CPR Project, partnering with MANNA, volunteering at Give Kids Sight Day, and more. Please contact Claire Caldarola (ccal19@nursing.upenn.edu) & Chantalle Dupontt (cdupont@nursing.upenn.edu) to join or with suggestions if there is a project you would like SNAP to get involved in.

Legislative

Are you interested in making a change in healthcare? Do you want to raise awareness of any health issues? In this committee, you can pick a healthcare topic that you want to call attention to - in the past, people have debated everything from PSAs regarding the dangers of tanning beds to public education regarding proper EpiPen usage. Then you research the topic, citing various scholarly journals as evidence and compile a resolution stating your position. This resolution is then presented and debated the passage of your resolution at state and national conventions. Change the future of nursing through the legislative process by contacting Delaney Wilkinson (dkwilk@nursing.upenn.edu) to join!
