You are invited to the Center for Health and Social Policy's (CHASP) annual alumni-student networking reception at the LBJ School of Public Affairs on Thursday, April 6, 2017. Our annual reception allows you to network with LBJ alumni, students, faculty, and staff over delicious drinks and hors d'oeuvres!
We will have opportunities for people to meet up with each other by social policy area of interest.
This year, we are also celebrating the amazing work and many contributions of one of LBJ's favorite and recently retired professors, healthcare scholar Dr. Dave Warner! Dr. Warner served at the LBJ School for over 40 years including as interim director of CHASP and has touched the lives of countless students and colleagues. There may even be a mini-roast involved!
Cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served. There is free parking in front of the LBJ School of Public Affairs (Lot 39) during the event from 5:00pm-8:00pm.
Click on the green registration button to register. Please share with your fellow alums!
Note: The 3/30 DC reception has been canceled. We hope to have a CHASP event at the LBJ Washington Center in the near future.
