Discussion Group for Building Resilience - Navigating NIH as an International Trainee

Discussion Group/Brown Bag: Personal Development

Dec 18, 2018

Speaker(s): Annie Scheiner, LCMFT, OITE Wellness Advisor
This event is recommended for: Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows.

International and multicultural trainees are a great asset to our research.  We also realize that our international fellows face a unique set of issues and stresses.  Being far from family and home during holidays, lacking a local community, and learning a new culture can be difficult and lonely.  Navigating the visa process can be frustrating and worrisome.  And watching world events unfold and not knowing what the future will hold can be scary.  You are not alone in dealing with these issues, other NIH international fellows are having the same experiences. 

 Building your resiliency and self-care skills now will help you to successfully navigate through periods of growth, and will serve you well throughout your academic and career path. The discussion group provides a confidential and welcoming environment with other NIH international fellows having similar experiences.  Please consider joining OITE Wellness Advisor, Annie Scheiner on Tuesday, December 18th at 1:45-2:45pm in Building 2/Room 2W15.
