The Mentor Program

Registration for the Mentor program is now closed. Please consider participating next year!

Graduate students who are new to the AAHM have the opportunity to be matched with an established scholar—or “mentor”— in the field. On your registration form, indicate that you want to participate in the mentor program. Conference organizers will then facilitate an email introduction with a senior scholar who shares your research interests. It will be up to you and your mentor to find a mutually convenient time to meet in person during the conference.  

The Graduate Student Luncheon

The student lunch is an opportunity to meet fellow doctoral and medical students from other graduate programs. The lunch will be held on Friday at the Emory School of Public Health Grace Crum Rollins Building in the Rita Anne Rollins Room (8th Floor) and costs $10. Indicate your desire to participate on your registration form and then look to this map for directions to the Public Health building from the Conference Center. You must sign up during registration to attend the lunch. Lunch registration ends May 3rd.
