Science outreach relies on the ability to properly communicate to an audience, whether giving a public presentation, responding to questions from an intrepid reporter, or showing a laboratory demonstration to K-12 students. To help ASBMB members improve their communication skills, the Public Outreach Committee is hosting a workshop that will provide session participants the opportunity to work with experts from different fields to craft targeted descriptions of their research that will serve to inform individual constituencies.
