SSA is offering attendees an opportunity for practical, hands-on training in communicating technical information for a lay audience. Learn the foundation of working with the media — crafting a simple message that’s memorable. The majority of the workshop, scheduled for 10 AM–4 PM, will involve on-camera work and small group exercises. Each trainee will participate in at least one mock interview.
Nan Broadbent will facilitate the workshop. She is the press liaison for SSA, promoting the Annual Meeting and journals to the media. Prior to SSA, Nan worked in Washington, D.C., where she focused on research communications. She served as communications director for the journal Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She conceived of and created EurekAlert!, which is a tool widely used by science reporters and public relations officers.
