2015 Fellows Retreat Planning: Join the Team
The annul fellows retreat each spring allows you to step outside of your specialty, present your research, and connect with colleagues across the institute. All NICHD fellows and graduate students are invited to serve on the Steering Committee, which will plan our 2015 event for postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, and graduate students. This is a great opportunity to use your organizational skills and gain new transferrable skills while working in a team.
Please send a note to Amber Stratman, chair of the Steering Committee, at email@example.com to express your interest. The group builds the program for the meeting, invites speakers, reviews abstracts, selects fellow/graduate student presenters, moderates sessions, and plans a social outing, among other responsibilities. We hope to start our monthly meetings in September.
