"Communicating Value: Telling Your PHL’s Story to Journalists and Other Audiences"
St. Louis Union Station Hotel
St. Louis, MO
June 3, 2019
8:00 am - 11:30 am
Your public health laboratory is doing fascinating and valuable work that people want and need to understand – so how do you communicate about it with journalists, decision makers, students, public information officers and other members of your community? This workshop will focus on the skills necessary to convey technical subjects to non- science audiences.
At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to:
- Identify interesting and relevant stories that clearly illustrate the value of public health laboratory work
- Describe specific elements of your work in terms that non-scientists can understand and appreciate
- Utilize skills to comfortably build narratives and convey value in discussions with or presentations for a variety of audiences
