Liquid Magma,

You don't have to RSVP (though a heads up so we have a rough headcount is always appreciated). The event is really for you guys (and gals). It really has two goals: 1) To bring together the rising generation for a discussion of the future of medicine, and 2) help with career mentorship. A lot of the top physician and policy experts from the different Harvard programs (and other Boston programs) are planning to show up and it should be a great opportunity to network with other young people who have similar interests.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Hey etherdome,

This event is free, right. Sounds sweet. I think I'm finishing up in the OR early and will try to drop by. (BTW, who's on the panel??).
