Johnna Frierson, PhD
Mentoring and Communication Series

In an ideal world, your boss/PI would also be your mentor. However, that doesn't always happen - and even if it does, you may need more than one mentor to get to where you want to go. In this workshop, we will discuss how to find your mentor(s), how to ask them for guidance, and what to do to keep your relationship strong.

SPEAKER: Johnna Frierson, PhD, is Assistant Dean for Graduate and Postdoctoral Diversity and Inclusion for the Duke School of Medicine, where she expands and enhances the School of Medicine's diversity and inclusion initiatives for graduate students and postdoctoral appointees working in biomedical research. She obtained her undergraduate degree in Biology at Furman University in Greenville, SC and received her PhD in Virology in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Vanderbilt University. She completed her postdoctoral training at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine.

Attendance is limited to Postdoctoral Associates, Postdoctoral Scholars, and Graduate Students - researchers in other job categories may join the wait list .
