Despite studying and working in the rarified environment of academe, the forces of communication change will impact your career. The world of 24/7 news cycles, Twitter feeds, social media and the democratization of content has a direct influence on your success as a researcher, teacher and health or human services professional. You have the ability to define your image and communicate your ideas to a wide variety of audiences and achieve your professional objectives. This workshop will provide the foundation for students and postdocs to create a personal image, promote themselves and effectively communicate ideas that enhance their stature and persuasively present important information to target audiences. GMS doctoral students and fellows are invited to participate in a workshop sponsored by Foundations in Biomedical Sciences.

Notes: Refreshments will be served.
