The Nexus Lounge

For Students and Early Career Professionals

Network, recharge, learn, and relax in The Nexus, a lounge specifically designed for students and early career professionals! The Nexus will be open Monday through Wednesday during specific times noted in the program and is sponsored by BGC and SevenGen.

Returning this year is the ever-popular “Lessons inLeadership.” This casual setting allows for you to hear from accomplished professionals in the field and have a Q&A session afterward. Presenters include our two keynote speakers, AIHA's named award winners, board members, and volunteer group and committee members (schedule below)

New This Year to The Nexus Lounge!

Interested in learning more about AIHA's committees or volunteer groups? The Nexus Lounge will be hosting 50-minute sessions where you can meet committee and volunteer group members to find out more about how to get involved. Groups have been scheduled according to their affiliation with the AIHA Board of Directors' Color Council assignments.

Several of the Academic Track sessions will also be held in the Nexus Lounge. This track is developed for OEHS Students and Early Career Professionals to enhance their academic goals.
