Sign up now for a catered evening of mentoring from leading figures within the Society for Psychological Anthropology and the Society for Medical Anthropology. Any graduate student or postdoc attending the AAA 2016 meetings in Minneapolis, MN may apply to meet with 3-4 mentors. The student will meet with each mentor for 15 minutes at an evening networking reception with the hope of benefitting from sage advice regarding their research and career paths.
