Anita Franzione, DrPH, Assistant Teaching Professor at the Bloustein School, moderated the program.

The discussion provided general advice, tips when considering grad school or other opportunities, and how to find a mentor. It was followed by a ‘Coffee and Conversation’ hour, which gave students additional opportunities to talk with the panelists as well as faculty teaching in the Bloustein School.  The event was co-sponsored by the Bloustein School Undergraduate Program and the Office of Student and Academic Services.
