"Amherst Leads: Healthcare Policy, Careers and Science" - Fink Bioscience Symposium

Established in 2009 in honor of Gerald R. Fink ’62, the annual Fink Bioscience Symposium enables students who aspire to careers in healthcare policy, medicine and bioscience research to interact with Amherst alumni who are leaders in these fields. This year's symposium will feature topics including healthcare policy and careers, and the science behind them. Recent Amherst College alumni Niyi Odewade '17 and Emily Jackson '13 are scheduled to speak, among others. The Keynote address will be given by esteemed molecular biologist and professor of genetics at Harvard, Gary Ruvkun. Ruvkun is the recipient of the Lasker Award and Gruber Prize.

The symposium includes a dinner with the keynote address; registration is required. Please see the Fink Symposium website for registration, a full list of speakers and schedule: https://www.amherst.edu/mm/553184

The Fink Bioscience Symposium is sponsored and directed by the members of the Amherst College Class of 1962 and is managed by the office of Conferences and Special Events.
