Synaptics go Kayaking by Adriana Guardans-Godo Oct 07

On Friday October 7th a group of excited Synaptics went on an excursion kayaking on the Charles River. It was a beautiful sunny day and spirits were high as we paddled along the river, zigzagging past boats and shells and trying to survive the Saturday river traffic with no crashes. The best part of the day was having the opportunity to get to know new group members personally through one-on-one conversations - a trademark of the Synaptic experience. Being outdoors and taking part in such a teamwork activity was a fantastic way to jump-start the year and highlight the cohesiveness of our group. Can’t wait for the next adventure!

An Education in Nutrition by Nathaniel Tran

by tuftsigl

The last time I blogged, I was just starting to learn about food deserts and was writing a guide for the Center for Young Women’s Health to improve snacking behavior. Although the Center exists digitally, I spent several days trying to address issues regarding access to healthy foods in Boston specifically.
