Abstract

Just when you think you have everything figured out, BAM! COVID-19! Work-life balance is already a very tricky (and some would argue unattainable) goal. However, trying to achieve work-life balance in the middle of a global pandemic seems absolutely insurmountable. This presentation will try to breathe some socially-distanced fresh air towards the notion that hope is not lost and will encourage you to celebrate small victories. Although pandemic life is challenging as we attempt to continue science full-time from home and navigate many new uncertainties, prioritizing responsibilities and setting up transparent expectations will help facilitate balance. Hear the personal experiences of Dr. Bridget Ford, an Assistant Professor at UIW and UT Health San Antonio GSBS alum, on how to enact these among other approaches in the pursuit of balancing work and life during a global pandemic.
