Suzanne Degges-White among experts giving stress tips at April 15 STEM Café

How can we manage the stress and isolation of sheltering in place?

How do we cope with the challenges of working remotely and the anxiety of job uncertainty? How do we manage household relationships when resources, including technology and space, are limited?

Suzanne Degges-White, chair of the Department of Counseling and Higher Education, is among a panel of experts who will share good advice Wednesday, April 15, during the online NIU STEM Café: “Stressed and Depressed? – You’re Not Alone.”

Degges-White joins NIU Ombudsperson Sarah Klaper, and Brian Smith, director of the NIU Employee Assistance Program, for the 6 p.m. presentation via Adobe Connect.

Log onto between 5:30 and 5:50 p.m. Wednesday to access the café. The presentation will begin promptly at 6 p.m. and will last approximately two hours.

On a computer, the Chrome browser works best; you will be asked to download the Adobe Connect app. For tablets and mobile phones, visit your app store and download the Adobe Connect mobile app before attending. You will be able to listen to the speakers and will have a chance to type in your questions.

Sponsored by NIU STEAM, the STEM Cafés are designed to increase public awareness of the critical role that STEM fields play in everyday lives. For more information, contact Judith Dymond at 815-753-4751 or
