2015 SciComm Fellows Graduate
On December 11, our 2015 SciComm Fellows participated in their fourth and final science communication session. Congratulations to all faculty and post-docs who completed the training!
Here is a sample of accomplishments this year:
- Fellows Amber Beckley and Irene Liu published op-eds.
- Megan Mullen, PhD applied her SciComm training in a Q&A for Duke Today in which she addressed the political divide on climate change.
- Steve Taylor, MD applied his SciComm training to communicate his science at the World Health Organization.
- Four of the 2014 participants joined us for a Periodic Tables event and presented their science to a packed house at Motorco.
The SciComm Fellows Program is available to all Duke faculty and post-docs who are interested in improving their communication skills and putting those skills into action. Tuition is covered and admission is competitive!
If you are a graduate student interested in learning how to communicate your science, consider the Duke Initiative for Science & Society’s spring course on Science Communication for Scientists (BIOETHIC 702). This course provides students in the sciences with practical training in the communication of scientific research to non-scientists, and helps them develop skills essential to doing meaningful outreach.
