The Scientist And The Storyteller Workshop

May 30 @ 9:00 am May 31 @ 5:00 pm

The Scientist and the Storyteller Workshop is a two-day intensive training using a hands-on, workshop format that will equip scientists and journalists with concepts, tools, and strategies to successfully communicate scientific findings to the public. This two-day intensive workshop will help bridge the gap between scientific research findings and the distribution of important health information to the public. Led by a cross-disciplinary team of experts consisting of an experienced journalist and experienced public health researcher, the workshop will integrate seminar lectures with hands-on activities to put concepts into practice. This short course will train scientists to be better communicators and journalists to be better translators of scientific information. Participants will learn how science journalists work, how scientists are trained to report their findings, and best practices for collaboration between the two disciplines. Scientists and journalists at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-career professionals to participate.
