Cocktails & Conversations: Washington, D.C.

Join fellow Anteaters for Cocktails & Conversations at the National Press Club, the world's leading professional organization for journalists. Enjoy an evening of networking over heavy hors d'oeuvres and libations and hear a conversation between UCI vice chancellor for research Pramod Khargonekar, Ph.D. and distinguished alumna Susan Old '81, Ph.D., the deputy director for the division of extramural activities at the National Institutes of Health. Don't forget to bring your fellow Anteaters along too!
