Join other Hopkins alumni for a foodie dinner and discussion with Nathan Dominy '98, Charles Hansen Professor of Anthropology and Biological Sciences at Dartmouth College. Take a deep dive into our ancestral diet and discover how what our ancestors ate shaped who we are. The meal at Branch Line will reflect some of Professor Dominy's research. Finally, during the meal Professor Dominy will be presented with a Distinguished Alumni Award on behalf of the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association.

We hope you can join us for this unique celebration!
