Mentoring Matinée: An Interactive-Theater Performance for Faculty/Staff

Effective mentor-mentee relationships are crucial to success in graduate studies. "Mentoring Matinée" will tackle common issues that can undermine those relationships, including giving and receiving critical feedback, setting expectations, mentoring across cultural differences, and more. An interactive-theater group (Theater Delta) will perform scripted, realistic scenarios in which characters experience a series of conflicts. After each scenario the audience will have an opportunity to engage in a facilitated dialogue with the characters to further explore the themes presented.

As the use of digital health technologies expands, we ask, what's in store for the future of health?
