Writing About Population Research for Non-scientists

Have you ever wondered how to get your research into the hands of policymakers, or wished your findings were known by a wider audience? PRB and APC are organizing a webinar to highlight ways to expand the reach of your research by distilling your findings into messages and formats tailored for nontechnical audiences, including policymakers and the media. Panelists from Syracuse University and PRB will describe how to write an effective research brief, common pitfalls in writing for nontechnical audiences, and using social media to communicate about your research.
