Team SSRI,

Week 31.

A huge thank you to Ann Brewster for joining us for our SSRI Lunch-n-Learn. We love hearing about the research everyone is doing! Next month we will discuss the film Just Mercy. I’ve chatted with many of you who have either watched it or want to watch it, so please take the next few weeks to watch and digest and then let’s get together over Zoom to chat.

21 days until the 2020 Presidential Election. Please make sure you are registered. Vote by absentee ballot, participate in early voting, or wait until November 3rd. Just vote!

Feel like treating yourself but need an excuse? Well, luck you! This Wednesday is National Dessert Day. Enjoy!



Newsy Stuff

SSRI faculty and staff have been working hard these past few months to send out a survey to all of Duke University. Project ROUSE is a research project focused on how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting you, your work, and your well-being? You should see the email in your inbox this morning, so we hope you will take a few minutes to fill out the survey.

If you missed the Misinformation and Mistrust Symposium we hosted the other week, please check out the recordings. You can choose to just view Session1 or Session 2.

We’ve been posting some MIDS Alumni Spotlights, so be sure to take a peek to see where some of our students have ended up.
