Executive Functioning for Biomedical Researchers – May 2, 3PM part of Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and the NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education (OITE) is excited to be starting the month off with the fifth installment of the Mental Health and Well-being for Biomedical Researchers Series.
Please join us May 2nd, 3:00-4:10pm ET for “Executive Functioning for Biomedical Researchers”. The webinar will define executive functioning (EF) skills, with a particular focus on the role of EF for those working in biomedical research fields. The webinar will provide information on the types of daily stressors that impact one’s executive functioning, as well as concrete ways to manage EF needs and build EF tools.
Immediately following the webinar (from 4:10 – 5:10), we will host small group discussions facilitated by an OITE wellness advisor to discuss the material in greater depth. There will also be two supplemental sessions offered later in May, to further support EF skills building, as well as communicating about EF needs. Information on the follow-up sessions will be sent to those who register for the webinar. Additionally, a recording of the webinar will be made available 24-48 hours after the webinar. This series is open to everyone at NIH and beyond, so feel free to forward to colleagues at other institutions.
