There are several opportunities to connect with others and learn more about a variety of topics at PAA 2022. We are thrilled to provide these in-person opportunities to enhance your experience. Add these events to your registration.

April 8, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET (VIRTUAL)

The National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families and PAA are pleased to announce a free Hispanic Research Mentoring and Networking Breakfast.

The Mentoring and Networking event will be held virtually on April 8, 2022, from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET. The event is designed to facilitate relationships between mentees (students & new professionals) and mentors (leaders in the field) studying Hispanic populations and/or racial and ethnic equity. Mentors and mentees will be assigned to groups based on topical interest and will have ample opportunity to speak with both their peers and the mentors. Discussions will be informal, and topics may include those related to studying Hispanic populations, equity issues in population studies, and career development more broadly.
