After being away for several months, Science in Color Podcast is back with a brand new episode. In the first part of this episode, Alex and Veronica Varela discuss their brief trip in October 2017 to the Society for the Advancement of Native Americans and Chicanos in Science (SACNAS) National Conference in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. The second half of the episode is spent discussing why they had to leave the conference early; the passing of Alex’s mom. Having a chronically ill family member and subsequently losing them comes with a lot of emotions but going through all of this while in grad school can lend undue stress to an already stressful situation.
