The first pizza lunch and discussion meeting organized by the DOSS Social Heartbeat Committee kicked off on Friday, Oct 16 at 12:30pm.
Over 40 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff members showed up and participated in a lively discussion on how to handle failures, slumps and doubts, while enjoying Mama’s pizza and Second Cup desserts.
We have all left the meeting feeling less vulnerable to the downturns inevitable in a statistician’s life. The committee thanks all the participants (special thanks to Annette and Gillis for helping with the logistics!) and is eagerly working towards future events.
