Team SSRI,

Week 42.

In just a few days we’ll be saying goodbye (or good riddance) to 2020 and ushering in a new year. The best piece of advice I’ve received heading into 2021 is to get aligned with your goals and be brave enough to make new choices. I’m so proud of all our accomplishments this year and I cannot wait to see what we do in 2021!



Newsy Stuff

The Center for Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation at Duke has created a visitor response project in conjunction with RESIST COVID / TAKE 6! by artist Carrie Mae Weems. This outdoor exhibition is both hopeful (“Don’t Worry, We’ll Hold Hands Again”) and forceful—especially in its reminder that COVID-19 is more lethal to communities of color. The Duke TRHT Center will provide analysis and interpretation of visitor responses.

The Future of Survey Research Conference will gather an interdisciplinary group of researchers from a wide range of academic fields and industries to discuss innovations in social, behavioral, and health surveys. If survey research is your interest, please join!

MIDS is the middle of crazy admissions time! They have been putting together webinars to help prospective students get a glimpse into what it means to be a MIDSter.

Governor Roy Cooper visited the Duke University School of Medicine to tour the COVID-19 vaccination area. He was greeted at the door by Faye Williams, a retired VA nurse and now visitor screener at Duke, who was the first person in the Triangle to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

Director of Duke Human Vaccine Institute talks about the many continuing questions researchers still have about the COVID-19 virus and why Americans should have confidence in the safety and durability of the vaccine.
