WiS: Mental Health from PIs to Mentees

December 2, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Women in Science will host an event to discuss practices that investigators and lab members can incorporate to create an environment that promotes mental health. This event was motivated by stories from lab leaders and trainees who have expressed having difficulties with managing a lab, receiving training and connecting with lab members, while maintaining productivity, amid the pandemic. We have invited two outstanding speakers, experts in leadership and wellness, to lead this discussion.

We encourage principal investigators and lab members to attend this event and participate in the discussion. We hope that this event can serve as a resource and source of support for the Martinos Community.
