Science & Society SciComm Fellows Get Published After Communication Training

The third session of Science & Society’s 2015 SciComm Fellows Workshop focused on writing op-eds. Using techniques learned in class, two Fellows have already submitted and published articles. Amber Beckley, a criminologist studying the impact of early-life victimization on future development as part of Duke Psychology and Neuroscience, addressed presidential hopeful Ben Carson’s youthful change in The News & Observer. Irene Liu, who studies evolution of animal mating in the Duke Department of Biology wrote an op-ed on providing a safety net for California’s blackbird for the Contra Costa Times in California.
