In today’s climate, the need for proper science communication is more important than ever. Science has expanded and made incredible strides towards improving our daily lives and health. However, the general public does not always trust scientific data, and many public policies are not based on science. This often stems from poor communication between scientists and the general public or policy makers. Scientists are often misunderstood because they cannot clearly articulate their message in simple, clear, jargon-free language. This workshop aims to cultivate the skills necessary for scientists to communicate complex research topics on a simple, effective level for the general public without compromising the quality of their research.
