This year's AAAG Education workshop is entitled "Outreach and Public Engagement in Anthropological Genetics" and will take place on Wednesday March 25 from 1-4 pm in Grand Suite 3 of the Hilton. Our speakers include Deborah Bolnick, John Hawks, Ripan Malhi, Joe Orkin, PJ Perry, and Jennifer Raff, who will cover a range of topics relating to science communication and outreach. We will discuss different methods of communication with the public, characteristics of effective science communication, and various ways to incorporate outreach efforts into your research program. The workshop will be run as a panel discussion with plenty of opportunities for interactions between the audience and our speakers. Can't make the full workshop? Want to continue the conversation? Be sure to join us for an informal happy hour afterwards at the Flying Saucer, 900 South Spruce Street (about a 10 minute walk from the Convention Center). Any questions, please contact Heather Norton: [email protected]
