If I Were a Student Now: Life Lessons from Experts in Academia and Industry
Timeslot: Tuesday, April 20, 2021 - 11:00am to 1:00pm
Track: Career Catalysis
Scientific research – whether it’s graduate school, postdoctoral research, or academia itself – presents significant stressors to mental and emotional health. The job search and transition to independency can also introduce pressure for young scientists, especially during uncertain times. Come join the National Student Chapter and Young Scientist Group for a workshop on stress management, work/life balance, and mental health, organized by trainees and wellbeing specialists. We will also be discussing critical skills you can develop to better support your friends and peers.
Through this workshop, we hope to provide you with new tools to support your own mental and emotional health in academia and industry, as well as strategies to better support those around you.
Abstracts will be available for download on April 20, 2021.
