Upcoming events for students interested in health careers:
Ongoing – Dr. Rob Cannon is a member of the Institutional Review Board at Cone Hospital. They review clinical research proposals from local physicians who are doing research in oncology, cardiology, critical care medicine, etc. This Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 7:30-9am at the Heart Center at Cone Hospital. He is allowed to bring one or two students to the meetings to observe. We leave from the Stone Building parking lot at 7am.

Reminder – There is a Health Careers bulletin board on the first floor hallway of the Sullivan Science Building where Robin Maxwell, Chair of the Health Careers Advisory Committee, posts items for students interested in health careers. It is suggested that you occasionally check this bulletin board when you are in the Sullivan Building.
