Resiliency and wellness networking event

May 6, 2021 | 4–5 p.m. EDT

How do you cope with pressure? What are some tools for overcoming setbacks? These are questions that arise throughout a career, whether one is an undergraduate in a first science course or a senior researcher and scholar. This event will give participants an opportunity to reflect on and share their own challenges and strategies they have found successful (and unsuccessful) in developing resilience.
