pm – 2:15 pm, Room 303/305, Esplanade Level South
The Trainee-Mentor Luncheon is a wonderful opportunity for trainees (graduate
students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical fellows) in the field of human genetics to
meet and talk informally with senior members of the Society about career options,
goals, and professional opportunities. The luncheon is held on the first day of the
meeting so that students can continue their discussions with these mentors at other
times during the course of the meeting. Lunch will be served. Please see the ASHG
Meeting Web site (under workshops) for a list of mentors.
Tickets are non-refundable.
Separate advance registration required and admission is by advance ticket purchase
