Slice of Life: Postdoc Photo Contest
Really want to win one of those suitcases or Keurigs? Show us the Brigham through your eyes! Submit a photo of yourself at the bench, your favorite place at the Brigham, or anything else that you feel represents your life as a postdoc (NO patient data!). Click here to upload your photo.
The most creative and most engaging photos will each win one of the raffle prizes! You cannot win both the photo contest and the raffle, but feel free to enter both just in case.
