COVID-19 has altered the way we do things, making it a challenge to remain connected. The Cottler lab has taken to Zoom to engage with their team during weekly “Happy Half Hour” meetings. What started as a way to check in with everyone in the midst of everything virtual has become an appreciated break in the hectic work week. Dr. Cottler and team discuss topics from favorite recipes to questions like “what was your dream job as a kid?” Each attendee can emcee a meeting and pose their own discussion question. To date, the group has met over 40 times.
