What It Means to Be a Science Communicator

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!
