      Dr. Ewa Pluciennicka gave an amazing workshop on stress management during our PhD retreat. It was a great introduction into staying grounded during the stressful PhD process to not get lost in all the pressure. She set the room up in a way that made everyone comfortable to share how they are really doing with this rather large group of students. It was a really nice way to start a conversation around this important topic and made me feel really validated and connected to my colleagues.
