Student success in Research and STEM
This interactive session is aimed at providing STEM students with desire and knowledge of available opportunities including internships, resume-builders, graduate programs, etc. and provide practical advice for identifying and applying for these opportunities.
The purpose is to expose STEM students to the breath of opportunities available to them and how to explore them; these include: special research programs, science policy, entrepreneurship, study and/or research abroad, joint degree opportunities, and many more.
Not just students
In this motivational presentation, I draw from my story and the experiences of other students to transmit the reality that students can be more than just the future; that each one is capable of greatness even today.
The purpose is to allow students to examine their own potential, challenge their thoughts, and identify ways they can begin to use their passions to make an impact in their fields.
Additional topics covered include: Conquering Imposter Fears and Building an Academic Career that Stands Out
Science and Policy
How does a discovery made in a lab translate to new medical practices and in turn affect public policy? How can we as citizens and scientists affect health and science policy? Can I truly make an impact on policy?
The purpose is to discuss the importance of biomedical research, how research impacts public policy, and various opportunities to get involved in shaping public policy through research.
Additional topics discussed include: major examples of the impact of biomedical research, how studies such as the Harvard Medical Practice Study and the The Framingham Heart Study illustrate research and public policy, practical ways students and faculty can be involved in research and policy, among other topics.
Each talk is customized to the event and expected audience. As no two events are the same, no two talks are made equal. Each talk and presentation is tailored to bring the most benefit to your audience
