Tuesday, June 5th Young Professionals Social
Dr. John Pomeroy highlighted the role of the Young Professionals Program within the larger GWF context and encouraged YPs to “Follow your instincts and follow your passions.” Following Dr. Pomeroy's talk, YPs headed to Fairweather Brewing Company for a YP social.
Many thanks the countless volunteers at McMaster and Six Nations, and the GWF secretariat that helped make the Inaugural Annual Science Meeting such a success! In particular, many undergraduate students from the McMaster Water Network Student Chapter helped with booklets, greeted and guided ASM participants throughout the ASM.
