Findacure’s Mentoring Programme Celebration

March 18, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Cambridge Rare Disease Network - Findacure's Mentoring Programme Celebration 1
13 / 100
This event is for participants on Findacure’s 2019 or 2020-21 Patient Group Mentoring Programme only.

To celebrate the achievements of our 2019 mentoring cohort, and kick-off the 2020-21 round, we are inviting all mentees and mentors to join us for a celebratory event at the Royal Institute, London, on Wednesday 18th March

The event is a great opportunity for the 2019 cohort to look back at the year and celebrate their achievements, and for the 2020-21 cohort to meet their mentee/mentor in-person, learn about the programme, get support setting SMART objectives, and meet others involved in the scheme. The day will also include a training session, which will be relevant to all attendees.

For the 2020-21 cohort, we hope to let all applicants know who they have been paired with by Friday 13th March. As we endeavour to match everyone who applies, we encourage all applicants to sign up for the event, ahead of the formal pairing process.

Please note: certain parts of the event are relevant only for the 2020-21 cohort. If you are a participant on the 2020-21 programme, please register for the 10:00 – 17:00 session. If you are a participant on the 2019 programme only, please register for the 12:00 – 17:00 session.
