5 Myths about Science communication

9 Sep
My thesis data-collecting semester is all but calm, and I haven’t been able to sit down and really write a post in a couple of weeks (although I have a few in the making). Because of this I’ve decided to recycle some of my old posts that were published at the birth of this blog, which means they were probably never read. This post is from my first semester of grad school last fall when I was just beginning to learn about the complexities of science communication. I began making visuals to help me learn and this was one of the first! Enjoy!

Since the majority of graduate schoolwork is reading academic journals about a particular area of interest I have decided to start blogging the interesting articles I read. Since my specialization in Science/Health communication, these are the topics I will be posting about on a weekly basis.
