The Yale University School of Medicine (YSM) is proud to host the 2014 Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) Annual Retreat on Friday April 11th and Saturday April 12th. YSM is located at 333 Cedar Street, New Haven, CT.

New Haven is a city featuring New England charm, cosmopolitan style and shoreline pursuits.  The city boasts one of the most famous town greens in the country, and is honored as a National Historic Landmark.  If the green epitomizes the history of the city, the rest of downtown is a bustling testament to the here and now.  Energized by the presence of students from Yale, the city's core pulses day and night.  Foodies find over 130 restaurants where cuisine from virtually every culture can be savored.  Art, theater and music are a way of life in New Haven featuring old world masters and classics to award-winning plays and red-hot bands.  The inviting and beautiful Southern Connecticut Shoreline is the setting for this fabulous little city.
