All are welcome to participate!

Join us Thursday, February 14, 2019 at the AAAS Annual Meeting for the Communicating Science Seminar. This annual seminar focuses on different aspects and approaches to communicating science, always emphasizing both theory and practice -- such as connecting science and policy, strategies for sustaining public engagement in a research center, and building engagement capacity on campus and in communities. You can register for free if attending just the seminar: start registration and click on "special session or event."
