2017 Dine Around

What better way to meet new people, interact with colleagues or continue conversation sparked at the conference than through food, drink and exploration? This conference will welcome the first-ever NHC “dine around”! Participants can join small groups after the Capps Lecture to discuss an attendee-generated topic at restaurants within walking distance of Converse Hall. Each guest will pay for their own meal at the restaurant.
