Team SSRI,

Week 53.

I hope everyone can join us for the SSRI Lunch-n-Learn this Wednesday, March 24, 2021 @ 12:00-1:00 pm to chat with Karly Ford from Penn State. She’ll be discussing her work on the social construction of race and gender.

I hope everyone is finding success reserving a vaccination appointment. This dashboard shows the total number of doses that have been administered by NC providers and through the federal program administering long-term care vaccinations. It is updated Monday through Friday.

Each month SSRI puts out an e-newsletter to PhD candidates in the social sciences and this month Aria Chernik was our feature for the ‘5 pieces of advice in under 5 minutes’ section. She gave some great tips!

Summer will be here before you know it, so start thinking like a DIYer and tackle some of those projects on your list.
