DATE: February 12, 2018
TIME: 5PM – 7:15PM (Check-in at 4:45PM)
LOCATION: William Doo Auditorium
Many conferences and panels talk about their respective careers in scientific research and academia. But how can one balance a career in academia with one’s personal life? How does a career in science impact their relationships? We’ve invited professionals to share their experiences and opinions to give students more perspective on how to balance their career and personal and romantic relationships, a consideration often overlooked in choosing our careers. The event will follow a panel discussion and a mingling session.
