What's the Best Thing About Our Chapter?

Without a doubt, it's the lunch & learn meetings. Our lunchtime chapter meetings typcally include free pizza or sandwiches during a professional seminar given by an expert in the health, safety, and enviromental field. The meetings are generally one hour and are widely attended since they are held conveniently at the Grifols Campus in RTP each quarter. It is an amazing opportunity to receive continuing education and network with other professionals making a difference in the workplace. It's a great experience.
