Science Communication Workshop at Stony Brook University

Thursday-Friday, September 7-8, 2017 — 8:30am to 5:00pm

The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science invites STEM scientists* to participate in a free, two-day science communication workshop at Stony Brook University on September 7-8, 2017.

What To Expect

Alda Center workshops give participants the tools to communicate more effectively with people outside their field, including the general public, policymakers, the media, students, potential employers or funders, and prospective collaborators in other disciplines. Our dynamic, interactive workshops guide participants to connect with their audience, speaking clearly and conversationally about their work and why it matters. The Alda Center has trained over 8,000 scientists across the globe and we are excited to roll out the new curriculum at Stony Brook Campus.

The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science through its workshops and trainings empowers scientists and health professionals to communicate complex topics in clear, vivid, and engaging ways; leading to improved understanding by the public, media, patients, elected officials, and others outside of their own discipline.

Space is limited to 32 participants, so please sign up early to ensure your participation. Applications are due Sunday, August 20, 2017.
