The NIH-SACNAS Chapter (Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science) would like to invite you to this week NIH SACNAS Chapter “Lunch and Learn”. The NIH trainee community is a rich repository of languages, professional skills, and cultural diversity. Such diversity can be harnessed to mirror that of many communities; and serve as a substrate for meaningful interactions. Please join Dr. Belen Hurle, Education Outreach Specialist and Program Coordinator,  NHGRI, who will be sharing a volunteering project where members NIH SACNAS chapter members can get involved with to bring positive role models and career exploration opportunities to local Latino youth. 

Everyone is welcome!
