Massachusetts General Hospital

The Lead Dog program provides you with the chance to stay connected to Northeastern through educational and social events designed for alumni in your workplace. The program allows you to meet fellow alumni and students on co-op working in your organization, and occasionally mingle with members of other Lead Dog organizations. It also represents a great way to reconnect with your alma mater as you increase your networking connections and boost the recognition of your company throughout the Northeastern community.  

Northeastern's momentum is at an all-time high; with a number of alumni and co-op students at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), there is not a better time to become a part of the Lead Dog program at your organization.  Make your make today by helping to plan or simply attend events at MGH and on the Northeastern campus. Get involved today, and Go Huskies!
