The Brandeis-Harvard NIDA Center to Improve System Performance of Substance Use Disorder Treatment is delighted to facilitate opportunities for mentoring at the 2019 Addiction Health Services Research Conference in Park City, Utah! 

Mentoring can be helpful for individuals in all phases of their career, and we particularly encourage junior faculty, post-docs, and doctoral students to take advantage of this opportunity.  Mentors are senior researchers in various areas of health services researcher. Typically, mentors and mentees meet for 30-60 minute conversations during AHSR regarding a range of topics including career development, networking, and proposal planning. It can be particularly helpful to have a mentor outside of your institution, and we hope this will help start an ongoing relationship and lead to further networking. 

Here are some potential meeting times that the AHSR 2019 Planning Committee suggests:

Wednesday, October 16, 2019: 2:30 PM - 3:00 PM MST
4:30 PM - 5:00 PM MST
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM MST (if not attending opening reception film).
Thursday, October 17, 2019: 5:30 PM - 6:00 PM MST 
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MST (if not attending entire poster session).
8:00 PM - 9:00 PM MST
Friday, October 18, 2019: Post Conference (conference ends at 2:00 PM MST).

**Where these are suggested times - they are not set in stone, nor required. Meeting times can be any time that is entirely up to the mentor/mentee. Scheduling times are the responsibility of the mentor/mentee.
