Public Health & Policy Networking Lunch

Please join us as we learn from UVA alumni who now work in various fields that intersect between Public Health and Policy. Hear from alumni representing a variety of organizations with diverse approaches to working with health and policy issues to learn more about opportunities in these fields. Lunch will be provided and participants will be able to connect with professionals and current UVA graduate students in the public policy and public health programs to further discuss different healthcare and policy career paths.


Alumni participants will include:
