Unless your grandmother is a scientist, she may not understand exactly what you do for a living. Join GWISE for a presentation by Marjorie M. Montemayor-Quellenberg on communicating scientific work to non-scientists. Montemayor-Quellenberg will go over basic tips on how to describe science to a lay audience. The presentation will be followed by an open discussion. Also, members from the audience will have the opportunity to explain their work and have their explanation critiqued by their fellow audience members based on tips they learned from the presentation.
Marjorie M. Montemayor-Quellenberg is a senior research communications specialist in the Department of Communication and Public Affairs at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston.
