SIOP Goes Virtual

Matthew Haynes 0 27 Article rating: No rating

The SIOP 2020 Program Emergency Task Force is working hard to bring you a new way to experience the SIOP Conference and access the latest cutting-edge research. Preliminary details about the virtual conference and an FAQ page are available at https://www.siop.org/Annual-Conference and will continue to be updated.

Here are the basics:

  1. The conference will be virtual and asynchronous, so the presentations will be online for you to access as your schedule permits in mid-June
  2. You will be able to interact with presenters and other attendees using the popular Whova app
  3. You will be able to access the sessions and Whova only if you are registered for the conference. Not registered yet? You will be able to register soon, and at the early conference registration rate!
  4. Accepted conference submitters are being contacted soon to invite them to participate by sharing their research and session materials in the virtual event.

Working together and making the most of technology, we can make SIOP 2020 a different but exciting and informative event!

Tips for Working From Home With an Infant During COVID-19

The struggle is real. Parenting is, and always has been, a 24/7 job. Working parents have always struggled to integrate and blend parenting demands with job responsibilities in a way that makes it look seamless—each set of duties separate and contained. Note that I am using “integrate” and “blend” purposefully here. It’s not about balancing the two—job duties on one side and parenting on the other—with a give-and-take pull requiring us to direct and redirect our attention to avoid wobbling or falling out of equilibrium. 

But, let’s acknowledge that things are different right now as we weather this coronavirus pandemic. Because of Stay-at-Home orders, there has never been a clearer example of how working parents must blend the responsibilities of both roles. Parents of children of all ages are still integrating the demands of being a parent with those of their jobs, while now also trying to fill the roles of daycare, school, and friends.
