Last year, I became Directors of Events of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association.
While organizing in-person events has been challenging during the pandemic, online events have been a success! In January, for instance, the chapter hosted a Zoom Coffee Hour that was open to both members and non-members.
Our next online event is on March 30. We will have Namrata Sengupta, Ph.D. of the Broad Institute, MIT, present a free session called “What it means to be a science communicator — From part-time volunteering to a full-time career.”
In her talk, Dr. Sengupta will share:
Her career path from bench science to public engagement with science.
Three key tools for effective science communication — knowing your audience, distilling your message, and dejargonizing your message.
Different paths available for scientists to practice science communication such as written, social media, multimedia, and outreach.
Career tips for students and trainees interested in either doing part-time or full-time science communication.
This event will take place on Wednesday, March 30, from 12:30 to 1:30 pm, US Mountain Time on Zoom. You can register here.
This session is open to everybody. Please join us!
