IS P18CONNECT EFFECTIVE?

Our alumni seem to think so:

Another thing is that Cristina Tamayo came with us to every corporate meeting to demonstrate the sponsorship of the Puerto Rico Science Trust, as an institution. In other programs, yes they give you the contact, but then you’re on your own. Here they go with you every step of the way.
