Seminar on the NIH Loan Repayment Program

Join us to learn about the NIH Loan Repayment Programs, a set of programs established by Congress and designed to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers.

The escalating costs of advanced education and training in medicine and clinical specialties are forcing some scientists to abandon their research careers for higher-paying private industry or private practice careers. The LRPs counteract the financial pressure of scientists by repaying up to $35,000 annually of a researcher’s qualified educational debt in return for a commitment to engage in NIH mission-relevant research.

Trip to the Boston Harbor Islands

Hosted by MIT-PDA Community Building Committee

On July 9th we would like to take you out to the Boston Harbour Islands (http://www.bostonharborislands.org/). We will take a ferry at 9 AM (Meeting 8:30 AM sharp) from Long Wharf and spend the day out on the islands. You are basically free to roam wherever you like, but here some suggestions. First we will go to Georges Islands, where you can visit Fort Warren, if you want. Later we will take a ferry over to Spectacle Island and spend the rest of the day on the beach. Bring some stuff for a potluck picnic. The return ferry will leave Spectacle Island to Boston at 4:30 PM. However, if you want to stay and camp on the islands or separate from the group and leave at different times, feel free to do so. Just be aware that you might have to pay for your return ferry.

Date and Time Sunday, July 9, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM

Location Boston Harbour Cruises at Long Wharf 1

Registration RSVP here. Cost is $5
