Hello Einstein Community:

The Science for the People chapter at Einstein would like to invite everyone in the Einstein community to participate during the next episode of the SFTP Education Series. Our next episode will be held via zoom Today, Wednesday, September 9 at 7:00pm

This month, we will be discussing the impact, opposition, and importance of affirmative action in the U.S. Below are the links to materials we will be discussing, including a 20 minute Patriot Act episode, a NY Times article, and a research document on affirmative action. 
We encourage everyone to attend and listen/contribute to these discussions. Our goal is to foster a safe space where everyone can be heard, where we can learn from each other, and support each other. We really hope you can make it!

Dear Einstein PhD Students and Postdocs:
The NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education has decided to open much of their fall programming to trainees across the county.  To keep up-to-date about programs, I highly recommend that you sign up for the NIH OITE listserv at
Their focus this year is to help trainees develop the resilience needed to thrive in high-knowledge environments. These programs will be great for trainees just starting out, those contemplating their next educational move, and those mentoring others. Groups will be organized by educational level so trainees can talk with others experiencing similar educational, work and life stressors.
Trainees who participate in the webinar or who watch the webinar online at another time, are welcome to participate in small group discussions. Groups will be held each Monday and Tuesday one week following the webinar. Trainees who complete five of the small groups and who participate in, or watch, all of the webinars will receive a certificate from NIH OITE upon completion of the series. The series topics and dates are listed below:
Lecture 9/15/20
Groups week of 9/21
