The Brown Bag Lunch subcommittee of the Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, was developed to provide an informal supportive environment that would allow staff to discuss clinically focused topics and best practices, preview presentations for meetings, or both. The initial goal was to hold six sessions per year. This article describes the first year's experience of the Brown Bag Lunches, the barriers encountered (e.g., attendance) and potential solutions (e.g., increase advertising), goals for the second year, and tips for conducting this type of educational offering in other healthcare settings.
