Please join us for a joint MHS/Vanderbilt and GHSM/Kings College London coffee hour for students!

Each month, we will gather for an informal virtual coffee hour to get to know one another and to speak about a cutting-edge topic with a featured guest. Come meet professionals at different stages of their careers, learn about their work, and ask them questions about how to navigate the complex terrain of making a living doing what one is passionate about.
