Eat and Engage

There are a couple opportunities to meet fellow attendees over a casual meal in Salt Lake City. On Thursday, April 11, or Friday, April 12, join an Out to Lunch group (the one on Friday is geared toward graduate students!). Sign up now or on-site and we’ll put you in groups of 4 or 5.

Also on Thursday, you can join a Dine Around. Facilitators submitted topics for consideration and will make the reservations and lead the group to dinner. Check out the topics, then on-site come to the NCPH registration table to join one. For both Out to Lunch and Dine Arounds you cover the cost of your own meal.
