Pour your favorite beverage and get ready… the CDS Student Coffee Chat is Back! Our topic for September will focus on Stress Management and Work Life Balance.

The cookouts and picnics are ending, kids have headed back to school, work demands are increasing, and the holiday season is approaching… Let’s talk about it! As we enter a new academic year, this Coffee Chat focuses on how to strategically manage the many “life demands” we encounter while progressing through doctoral studies.
