What we do

  • Support each other
  • Help our peers find resources both on campus and in the city
  • Host events
    • in the past year: potlucks, hiking, snowshoeing, lacrosse game, holiday gift exchange, GSA holiday food drive, meals at the LDL, attend Grad Fest, abstract review sessions, paper and poster presentation practice…
    • most of our events are free, but AHC does its best to subsidize students if there is a cost
  • Organize an Annual General Meeting
