Coronavirus Conversations: Surviving & Thriving as a STEM Grad Student During the Pandemic (A virtual panel discussion)

Free, but pre-registration required: https://scienceandsociety.duke.edu/events/coronavirus-conversations-surviving-thriving-as-a-stem-grad-student-during-the-pandemic/

Being a graduate student in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) discipline is always challenging and stressful.  How do the stresses and challenges increase during a pandemic, when students abruptly find themselves unable to go into their lab or do their fieldwork?  How can graduate students adapt to these additional challenges, and what can advisors and graduate schools do to support them during these challenging times?  Are new opportunities for STEM graduate students arising during the pandemic, and if so, how can grad students take advantage of these opportunities? Join Duke Science & Society as we discuss the unique challenges of STEM graduate school work during a global pandemic.
