Come join your colleagues for this month’s Postdoc Union social at the next Farmer’s market picnic. We will enjoy each other’s company, the music, and all the other things the picnic has to offer. Families and friends are of course welcome, and it is also a great opportunity to meet new people!
We will meet in the middle of the park towards B street, close to the horses. (Call or text Will at 774-258-0079 if you have trouble finding us.)
See you there!

At this month’s membership meeting we’ll discuss the UC Postdoc Health Benefits, and generally how health insurance works in the US. Especially helpful if you’re a relatively new UCX Postdoc, or you want to educate yourself on all options before the Open Enrollment period coming up in October/November.
Come celebrate the beginning of a new academic year with your fellow Postdocs at our annual Postdoc Fall BBQ in Slide Hill Park! We will provide the food and some drinks, but feel free to BYOB (alcohol *is* allowed at the park). Partners, family, friends, and pets are welcome to join. We’ll also be kicking off our first ever postdoc bocce ball tournament!
(At the intersection of Tulip Ln. and Temple Dr.) – we’ll be in the picnic area.
Please RSVP so we can buy enough food and coordinate carpooling if needed. We hope you can make it!
