As another component to the one-to-one mentorship program at the North American Annual Meeting, mentees have the opportunity to meet mentors informally in groups during breaks in rooms divided as per core research specialties. There will be a room assigned to each research specialty during each break, allowing mentors to attend whichever time slot best suits their schedule. This will be an excellent opportunity for mentees to gain exposure to a broad group of experts and other mentees with similar research interests. Mentor/mentee matches can meet in-person during the breaks, while also allowing for other mentees and mentors to meet, who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to meet during the conference.
