We rounded off the year with a virtual photoshoot and yankee swap. Despite the loneliness of a remote-everything-year, being together always brought a smile to cheer us up. So much laughter, energetic/confused pets, bright colors, and everyone left with a little gift ranging from cozy to yummy to keep company.
Happy holidays from us to you!

Our first survey research findings are published in the journal Nutrition. We found that employment change was a significant stressor during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many individuals experienced worsened moods and coped with their stress by comfort eating during this time. We hope these findings alert us to remember self-care in times of stress - starting by eating well. Take care everyone!
Also, congratulations Nikita on your first paper (and learning SPSS on your own)!
