The Social Committee plans and executes various social engagements for Weill Cornell Medicine postdocs to facilitate networking and foster community spirit among the postdoctoral fellows. In addition to monthly happy hour mixers, the Committee has organized bowling nights, ice skating socials, trips to museums, barbecues, pancake breakfasts, and holiday season parties, among others. Our activities are generously supported by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, and we aim to deliver them at no cost to postdoctoral fellows.
Note from former Committee Chair Marek Drozdz:
"Being an active Postdoctoral Association member has helped me to engage with the wider Weill Cornell Medicine postdoctoral community, and make an impact on the issues that are important to us. Being a Chair of the Social Committee has afforded me the opportunity to regularly interact with many postdocs, most of whom I would not have met otherwise. In addition, planning and delivering social activities has helped me to master my organizational skills. And all of it, while having fun and socializing with my fellow postdocs."
