Many busy scientists feel overwhelmed by the amount of work they need to get done every day. Between managing deadlines, mentoring a postdoc, and balancing the demands of work and home — how often are you finding yourself stressed out? Some stress is normal and even useful. But if stress happens too often or lasts too long, your research — and your health — will suffer.

And even though it may seem like there’s nothing you can do about your workload and family demands, until you accept responsibility for the role you play in creating or maintaining stress, your stress level will remain outside your control.

Take the first step into effective stress management today and learn from Dr. Duffy, stress management expert, as she reveals common themes which add to stress and ways to avoid them, and provides step-by-step guidance on how to organize, partition and manage your every day responsibilities so that you rid yourself of stress and reach a balanced life, with time for work, family, relaxation, and fun — plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on.

Meet Your Presenter:

Dr. Heather Duffy, is a member of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Academy of Medical Educators, and is the primary panelist at the Career/Life balance faculty development program. Dr. Duffy has also been invited to speak at the career/life balance talk for the American Heart Association coming up in November 2011. She spends approximately 70% of her time on research with the rest of her time spent on teaching and development of teaching methods.

Dr. Duffy obtained her PhD from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Neuroscience (AECOM). Her thesis was on the regulation of junctional complexes. Following a one year Postdoctoral fellowship at AECOM she moved to Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Here her work on the role of gap junctions in formation of syncytial tissues led to studies in cardiology. She moved to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, where she is presently an Assistant Professor of Medicine. Her work here focuses on the role of gap junctions in the formation of the arrhythmogenic substrate of Sudden Cardiac Death.
