Cookies & Careers: Medical Affairs, June 22

The NextGen Association is pleased to announce the launch of a new roundtable series, “Cookies & Careers.”
“Cookies & Careers” aims to introduce academic trainees to the many non-academic career options available to them in the life sciences sector. The series will highlight the opportunities through a series of small, interactive roundtable discussions with Broad alumni and professionals working in different fields… all while enjoying some cookies and coffee.
The series will launch on June 22, 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Board Room (415 Main Street, 1st Floor, Mezzanine), discussing careers in Medical Affairs.
