One of the most exciting and motivating experiences for early career professionals is connecting with a successful leader who can provide meaningful mentorship and guidance. This lunch will provide an informal forum for new connections to be made between early career professionals and leaders in stroke. Special efforts have been made to ensure a memorable and worthwhile activity for all attendees. This luncheon is open only to students and early career registrants (those who have completed training in the last five years or those in the first five years after faculty appointment.)
