  • Research!America - Effective Techniques for Communicating Your Science to the Non-Scientist
  • Oct 08
  • The Office for Science and Innovation (OSI) is pleased to announce that in conjunction with Suzanne Ffolkes, VP of Communications at Research!America, we will be hosting a workshop in October focused on effective scientific communications. Research!America is the nation's largest not-for-profit public education and advocacy alliance committed to making research to improve health a higher national priority.

    This interactive workshop will focus on ways to distill complex scientific information into short but informative narratives to engage a non-scientific audience. The workshop will engage participants in exercises including developing and critiquing sample "elevator pitches." (e.g., how to describe your research in 1 - 2 minutes).  Participants will exchange advice and best practices for how to communicate with policymakers, potential funders, media, and consumers.
