Please join us at our PDA Monthly Postdoc Happy Hour and Game Night at Barney’s Beanery in Westwood Village. We plan on hosting these happy hours throughout the year, typically every third Thursday of the month; future dates will be announced here.  Come enjoy some appetizers and games while hanging out with your fellow postdocs. Feel free to bring along your favorite games, or just bring yourself — all postdocs are welcome, and we look forward to seeing you there!  The first Happy Hour of the Winter Quarter will be on Thursday, January 17th. 


We offer weekly drop-in sessions for UCLA postdoctoral scholars led by Dr. Andrea Brard in the RISE space. These sessions are aimed at supporting the wellness of UCLA postdoctoral scholars seeking to learn more about mindfulness, how to cultivate a mindfulness practice, and how mindfulness can be useful in daily life. Light refreshments provided. No prior mindfulness experience necessary.  The Winter Quarter Mindfulness Sessions will happen every Monday from 5:30-6:30 PM.



Stay tuned here for Winter Quarter PDA dates, times, and topics.
