by Scout, Ph.D. Director, CenterLink’s Network for LGBT Health Equity
UPDATE — Sharon has been struck mute by some nefarious bug. Clearly it’s a viral conspiracy to make sure we don’t get more LGBT people in the scholarship pool! Fight back by researching the opportunities yourself at the NIH website http://www.training.nih.gov… or spreading the word even more so more folk can join Sharon when she tries to give this same webinar for us Jan 8th, 3 pm. Registration details coming in Jan.
UPDATE UPDATE — register here for January 8 3 pm webinar: https://attendee.gototraining.com/r/6458210599331727105
When we heard how amazing the scholarship & mentorship programs are at National Institutes of Health… we begged their (openly gay!) director, the esteemed Dr. Sharon Milgram, to please come spread the word to LGBT students directly. So, CenterLink & the Network for LGBT Health Equity are more than pleased to be collaborating with NIH to bring you a one on one conversation with the Director of these programs. Sharon promises to make what might seem complicated simple, and give you the inside dope on how to get yourself, or some young hotshot you love hooked up with the largest and most esteemed health research agency in the world. I know researchers who would give their eyeteeth to work at NIH — and I know we NEED more LGBT researchers at NIH desperately. So please do share this webinar info with your favorite students or postgrads!
