The Policy and Advocacy Committee

The Policy and Advocacy Committee, established in 2011, serves to understand and address issues affecting the JHMI postdoctoral community. It is currently chaired by Grace Kim and Akansha Sehgal

Our goal is to educate, advise, advocate, and when necessary, work with the university to resolve problems affecting postdoctoral fellows. We help bridge communication between the postdoctoral community, representatives of the University Health System, the School of Medicine, and the Dean of Postdoctoral Affairs. We give voice to the issues that affect the postdoctoral community at regular meetings with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, monthly Faculty Senate meetings, and monthly Health Care Committee Meetings.
