We are pleased to welcome Randy Olson, PhD
Randy Olson
We have the pleasure of having Dr. Randy Olson - independent film maker and author - present his thoughts and experiences on how to communicate science to the public. He will be giving a plenary talk during the meeting and will be conducting three hands on sessions with small groups of fellows (8 per session) designed to help participants develop strategies on how to tell their own stories. Dr. Olsen has a PhD from Harvard, did amazing post-doctoral work, and held a faculty position before following his passion for story telling. Read more about Dr. Olsen here.
