McMaster Science Cares with Dean Maureen MacDonald

Dean Maureen MacDonald“Everyone take a deep breath in as far as you can, all the way to the bottom of your spine, now let it out. Remember as we move forward through these difficult times that you always have the capacity for that breath. You just need to pause and find it. We miss our students, their energy, their passion and their enthusiasm, but we also know that our students are incredibly resilient and will succeed. Keep breathing and moving forward.”

McMaster Science Cares with Krista Howarth

Prof Howarth"This is me recording anatomy and physiology lectures late at night in my basement after my kids have finally collapsed for the day!

I just wanted to give a quick thanks to all the wonderful students I had this term and to all the graduating students I have taught. I am grateful I get to work with such an amazing group of young people every day. I know this has been a challenging way to end things, as some of you missed the end of your very first exciting year and others missed saying goodbye after four eventful years together, but we are a McMaster family and we can get through this together!
Wishing you strength and best wishes.

Stay Healthy. Stay Safe."

McMaster Science Cares with Ana Tomljenovic-Berube

Prof Ana with kids“I’ve been thinking of you all as we’ve transitioned to this new distanced way of living/studying/working. I’m the kind of person that tends to “roll with the punches” but I certainly feel like we as a society have been sucker-punched by SARS-CoV-2 (i.e. COVID-19)!

I know I am still reeling a bit, trying to wrap my head around what is happening, hoping for the best and trying to steel myself for the worst. The thing that I have found most solace in is the thoughtfulness and generosity of the people around me – my fellow colleagues, my students (yes you!) and my family and friends. I have had some lovely conversations with many of you, which has lifted me up; I know that this change has been difficult, but you have taken it in stride and are doing your best.

Be kind to yourselves. Get rest when you need it. Don’t be afraid to reach out to your professors if you are struggling - we understand and want to help if we can. Be responsible and abide by social distancing. This too shall pass, and we will be stronger for it.”

McMaster Science Cares with Angelica McQuarrie

Angelica with her dog"A new space and a new office mate: two very small reflections of how different the world looks right now.

To all of our student staff and volunteers: I think what our community members likely miss most about PACE is the time spent learning and working with you. The support, dedication, and enthusiasm you bring to PACE is so valuable and has such a tremendous impact on the lives of so many community members. We can’t wait to see you back at PACE when all returns to normal. These are challenging times, but you will come out the other side a more resilient version of yourself. Take some time to reflect inward and refocus what’s truly important to you. Stay connected (virtually) with family and friends, keep moving, and remember, we’re all in this together".
