Team SSRI,

Week 55.

Let’s start off with some good news: US hits 4 million COVID-19 vaccine doses in a day for a new record.

A new session of the Duke Graduate Academy (online short courses that provide skills, tools, and knowledge that augment regular coursework/research) has been announced and many of our SSRI teammates are leading some of the courses.

One of the things I miss most about not being on campus this time of year is the Duke Gardens. After a year-long closure due to COVID-19, Sarah P. Duke Gardens plans to reopen in careful phases.

I’m always curious how other people celebrate holidays and their favorite foods/treats. Boiled eggs came in as the most liked Easter treat with 14 states listing it as their favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good ol’ boiled egg, but a Peep is more my style.

Best,
Courtney
