STEP Session on Science Communication

The Staff Training in Extramural Programs presents "Science Communication: Give It to Me Straight!" on Wednesday, Feb. 16 in the Natcher Bldg., Conf. Rms. E1-E2, from 1 to 4 p.m. The featured speakers are: Bernard Glassman, special expert in informatics, Office of Science Policy, NCI; Dr. Leslie Lang, information officer, University of North Carolina School of Medicine; Sally Squires, science editor, Washington Post; and Dr. Jonathan Miller, director, Center for Biomedical Communications, Northwestern University Medical School.

In an age of emerging technology, we are bombarded with information about research findings and health related issues. How do we evaluate the information and know that it is valid? What's the source of the information? This session will address these questions and provide insight into how professional communicators access and evaluate scientific data, and package the information for dissemination.

All employees are invited to attend. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Inform the STEP office about any need for sign language interpretation or reasonable accommodation by Feb. 10. For more information call 435-2769.
