Please join this warm and welcoming group of LGBTQI+ trainees to enjoy a safe space and be yourself. Let’s share our unique resources, experiences and challenges to help you feel connected and supported during your time as an NIH trainee. Whether you are feeling isolated, unsure or just want to expand your community, this LGBTQI+ group is for you.  Labels are less important than your feeling connected to our community; come join us wherever you are on your own personal journey. This session is open to trainees at all levels (postbac, grad, and postdoc).

Please join us on Thursday, November 21st at 11:00am for a discussion with OITE Wellness Advisor, Lissa Mantell in Building 2/Room 2W15.  The discussion group provides a welcoming and confidential space to explore positive and proactive ways to build resilience and self-care skills. Even if you can't join us for the entire hour, we encourage you to still attend.  We would rather you come late or leave early, than not come at all.
