Yesterday, the Peer Lab summer team went out to lunch with the teams from three other labs. Dr. Beth Mechlin’s Stress and Health lab (neuroscience) joined us. They are currently working on studies about gratitude and stress as well as stress and debt. Dr. Nelson Bingham’s student (psychology), Toni Thompson also joined us. She recently returned from Florida where she conducted interviews in her community. She is working on transcribing them now. We were also joined by Dr. Jennifer Seely’s lab (politics). Those students are doing a community-based project examining voter turnout in Wayne County.
It was a nice chance for the students and professors to socialize and get to know each other better.
