Past Events

Hiatt Biotech Networking Event

November 14, 2018

Shapiro Science Atrium
11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

At this networking (not recruitment) event, there were four general areas of interest: healthcare administration/consulting, research/policy, clinical/medicine and commercial.

Although the event was live on Handshake, the event was free to all (yes, no registration fees!).

Bonus points: a pre-VIP event in the bio library was also in the offing but only open to alumni and external employees — a more intimate setting, designed for HSSP alumni who are serious career planners, this mini networking "appetizer" was a warm up for the big main event.

Insider Spotlight Event

November 7, 2018

11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

At this tabling event, students circulated tables asking questions of/getting insider information from the attending companies and grad school admissions representatives. A small but valuable networking opportunity not to be missed!

Wasted! The Story of Food Waste Screening

November 2, 2017

7–9 p.m.
Mandel G03

Can you imagine if every time you opened your wallet, a third of your cash fell out — and you did nothing about it? Consider the fact that one-third of the food grown annually for human consumption is never eaten - for one reason or another, it ends up in the garbage. That's $218 billion — or 1.3 billion tons — of food annually. In America, families chuck about 25 percent of the food and beverages they buy at a cost of $1,365 to $2,275 annually. Yet at the same time, 800 million people around the globe are starving. It's a problem — but one with no shortage of solutions.

WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world's most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it's directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small, and delicious changes to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

Film screening sponsored by funding from Undergraduate Department Representatives; Environmental Studies; Health: Science, Society, and Policy; Sociology; Social Justice and Social Policy; and Brandeis Sustainability. Food will be provided by Campus Activities Board. A post-screening discussion will follow led by Food Recovery Network.
