Lunches on Health Issues
Five times a year we hold an informal lunch for leaders in the public and private sectors, focusing on health issues affecting adults or children. There are guest speakers and participants from the government, academic, corporate, and nonprofit community. Every July we hold an informal lunch for interns. The lunches are free but reservations are required. To get on our lunch invitation list, please email us at: email@example.com.
