This year, we will move together to reach 1 million steps! Your steps and donation will support the Indigenous community at Minwaashin Lodge, a charity organization in Ottawa that provides support and services to Indigenous women and children who are survivors of violence.
You can return to our webpage to log your steps and motivate (or challenge) each other to step out and be active!

We attended our first virtual conference at the SfN Global Connectome. Persephone and Bianca presented their virtual posters! They pre-recorded a short audio clip that accompanied the poster and had a 30-min live video chat session with conference attendees. Lively conversation and meaningful connections in the chatroom.
As Bianca notes, we are keeping up the tradition of posing beside our posters anyways. Enjoy!

We rounded off the year with a virtual photoshoot and yankee swap. Despite the loneliness of a remote-everything-year, being together always brought a smile to cheer us up. So much laughter, energetic/confused pets, bright colors, and everyone left with a little gift ranging from cozy to yummy to keep company.
Happy holidays from us to you!

Our first survey research findings are published in the journal Nutrition. We found that employment change was a significant stressor during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many individuals experienced worsened moods and coped with their stress by comfort eating during this time. We hope these findings alert us to remember self-care in times of stress - starting by eating well. Take care everyone!
Also, congratulations Nikita on your first paper (and learning SPSS on your own)!
