July 13, 2017 @ 2:00pm ET
The way that information is being shared is constantly changing as are the pathways for communicating with the public. You may be a wiz in the lab, but do you know the right formula for developing your social media presence? How are scientists using social media to communicate the value of their science with the public, the media, policymakers, and others in their community? Join Chris McCarthy, Manager of Social Media & Member Engagement with the American Chemical Society, as he shares the role that social media plays in science communication and how to improve your online skills.
