Relationships in Grad School Dinner Talk
It is often discussed that grad school can be an isolating and difficult experience for individuals. However very rarely do we address the challenges and difficulties for grad students with partners or spouses, and how they navigate these important relationships while succeeding in their program. We have a wonderful opportunity for our students, to hear from a married couple with a uniquely expert and experienced perspective!
Please join Dr. Lisa Moscoso, MD, PhD, and her husband Dr. Tom Wagner, PhD as they discuss the trials, tribulations, and beauty in being a married couple, building a family, during their respective grad educations. Dr. Moscoso is the Dean for Student Affairs at the WashU School of Medicine, and obtained her MD/PhD at Washington University. Dr. Wagner is a relationship counselor, resilience researcher and presenter, and obtained his PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Louis University.Drs. Moscoso and Wagner will share their experience, offer advice, and answer questions all around the navigation of maintaining a healthy spousal/partner relationship while in graduate school. While we are inviting couples (including non-WashU spouses and partners) to attend, we encourage those currently without a spouse or partner to attend if interested!
