Powerful ideas and rich scientific evidence can lead to meaningful social change, though too often ideas and data do not move beyond the computer or printed page. This event brings together individuals with expertise and experience in communicating complex ideas in simple ways to facilitate change. Attendees are invited to grapple with how to translate their own work so that it can be put to use. In addition to the event at noon, students and faculty are invited to sign up for a personal session with Jolene Hernon to sharpen presentation skills or get feedback on how to promote specific ideas.
