Today is the penultimate finale of NPA Week which means it's party time! Our Three Minute Thesis Information Session has shifted to a virtual event, but the BBQ is still happening in-person with tasty food and free drinks for the whole CHOP/Penn research community! A lucky postdoc will also be taking home a $100 Amazon gift card. The winner will be announced at the BBQ and you must be present to receive it! You can also check out multi-institutional virtual and in-person celebrations that are open to all postdocs on the National Postdoctoral Association website.
Will you be travelling to campus to participate in NPA Week but you're unsure where you can park? Parking is free for all CHOP employees after 11:45am in any lot. Just scan your badge when entering and exiting the lot. While we advise that you park in Roberts to allow patients and families to have priority parking, employees are permitted to park in the Buerger lot after 10am, however you will need to take a ticket and pay the daily rate. Due to construction, you may need to enter the Buerger lot via Health Sciences Drive. If you have specific parking questions, please refer to this parking update or email!
