What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?

As someone who recently moved to Portland, one thing that I need/want right now is to build my general sense of community with like-minded peers who can help me establish a professional and personal network in the Portland area. While I have begun to build a small community of peers in academia through my job, I am really interested in expanding my network to community and industry professionals to help me engage in outreach and education opportunities (ideally related to mental health and science), while also exploring career options for after I have completed my postdoc.

What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?

After I finish my postdoc, I am looking to go into industry and am currently considering positions as a medical science liaison or consultant. I am interested in networking with individuals with these or similar careers to help me explore mental health- and science-related career options outside of academia.
