Applications sought for the IIMS translational science communication program

UT Health San Antonio’s Institute for Integration of Medicine & Science (IIMS) is seeking applications for the inaugural cohort of its Translational Science Communication for Impact training program.

Ten participants will be selected for the inaugural cohort, which will learn science communication from seasoned experts who have successfully bridged the gap between academia and the public. The program will also offer an opportunity for trainees to connect with a vibrant, like-minded community to foster collaboration and exchange ideas.

Applications are due by Feb. 14 at 5 p.m. Apply here.
