The National Postdoctoral Association Highlights Members' COVID-19 Stories

By: National Postdoctoral Association
ROCKVILLE, Md. - April 10, 2020 - PRLog -- The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us on a global scale, causing significant change in our daily lives—shifting work from offices to homes, requiring family balance, navigating virtual meetings, and trying to maintain mental and physical well-being. In these unprecedented times, the National Postdoctoral Association remains dedicated to building community, providing resources, and supporting all members of the postdoctoral community, as we learn to navigate the effects of this pandemic together. We reiterate our commitment to you, prioritizing our efforts to listen to our members and innovatively designing new ways to collaborate. Amidst much uncertainty, the NPA will stay true to its mission—facilitating connections and raising awareness of the postdoctoral community.

As part of our dedication to engage with and strengthen our diverse community, the NPA will be highlighting your inspirational stories over the coming weeks. To begin, we present this special issue of The POSTDOCket: Every Member, revealing the impact of COVID-19 on our postdoctoral community in their own words. In it, you will find articles focused on how members of our community boldly navigated changes to their work, as well as their personal and professional development. This issue also showcases postdoc-led research that may ultimately lead to treatments and vaccine-development aimed to mitigate the effects of COVID-19.

We encourage all of you to continue to connect with us through one of our social media channels using the hashtags #NPAEveryMember and #COVID19.
