Virtual Writing Retreat: Celebrating Melanin Magic In Medicine

Do you have a project that you have been putting off? Please join us for a virtual writing retreat on July 23 from 10 a.m. ET to 2 p.m. ET. PAEA chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer Monica Miles, PhD and Shani Fleming, MS, MPH, PA-C are hosting these events to assist underrepresented PA faculty and their allies with a space to write in solidarity.

We all have heavy workloads and this virtual space will provide a collaborative community to support your scholarship. Each session will run four hours with short check-ins to encourage you to keep writing or ask for advice. You will need to come prepared to the session with:  

  • All materials that you will need to work on the selected writing task  
  • Comfortable clothes 
  • Set up your writing area to be comfortable  
  • Snacks  
  • Remove all distractions (turn off notifications) 
  • Positive energy 

Register here.
