The Life Stories lunch series provides a forum to foster community through sharing stories of challenge, growth and meaning. At each lunch, a student, faculty or staff member talks about an aspect of their lives that may be meaningful to others, followed by questions and comments. Lunch is provided. Sponsored by Mental Health Promotion and the Wellness Team. https://www.amherst.edu/mm/440084
