Monthly Twitter chats with @ASBMB


Hispanic Heritage Month

Thursday, Oct. 7 at 3 p.m. Eastern

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, this Twitter chat will highlight those who are involved in science outreach efforts for the LatinX community and who are communicating science in Spanish. We’ll ask our panelists and audience about the gaps in and barriers to communicating science in languages other than English. And we’ll ask how we can fill and overcome them. Join the ASBMB's Science Outreach and Communication Committee and Minority Affairs Committee and share your experiences, challenges, victories and resources.  #MultilingualinBMB #Latinx #ComunicaCiencia.
