'Mindful Mondays' refers to mindfulness practice sessions (primarily mindful stretching, insight and loving kindness meditations) hosted by Dr. Jonny Gerkin (Department of Psychiatry). Open/drop-in sessions are held (nearly) every Monday between 12:15 and 12:45pm in the Cancer Hospital chapel, across from registration (down the hallway past the Sanofi Aventis conference room). The actual practice usually spans 20-25 minutes with a few minutes set aside for potential discussion. All UNC affiliated faculty, staff, and students are welcome.
Registration is open for the Carolina Nanoformulation workshop, being held March 14-18 in Chapel Hill. This unique training program for industrial and academic scientists will include: Intensive online Integrated Learning Accelerating Modules (iLAMs); in-class lectures by leading industry, government and academic professionals; and hands-on practical training on nanoformulation.
