You’re invited to our live launch on Facebook or Zoom!

Our summer internship has focused on exploring various topics related to cardiovascular health disparities and inequities. This work culminated in students-produced videos addressing aspects of cardiovascular disease and the complexities that underlie health disparities. These topics range from identifying the effects of maternal smoking on the likeliness of birthing a preterm baby, heart-healthy diets and food deserts, hypertension and preeclampsia, and how mental health contributes to cardiovascular health and vice versa.

We want to invite you to join our viewing party on Facebook or Zoom! This viewing will be accompanied by the implementation of a survey questionnaire that assesses the impact of these videos. The live launch will occur on July 23rd and July 24th at 12:30 PM (1 Hr). The videos and surveys will remain available until July 29thIt would be great is you could participate and also pass the invitation on to others that you think might be interested!

  1. Just visit our Facebook page, (either for the Livestream on July 23rd/July 24th or afterward) 
  2. watch the videos,

I am an experienced scientist passionate about science communication, multi-disciplinary projects, and online learning and engagement approaches. It is critical that we find new strategies to communicate scientific finding and engage the public. Using online learning and visualization methods, I am exploring visual science communication to support online education and science marketing approaches. Although classically trained as a research scientist in pharmacology, I consider myself a science communication designer with skills ranging from project management, pedagogical approaches to online learning, video production, instructional design, and web design. With a foundation as a cross-disciplinary team member, I am interested in developing and utilizing these skills to produce science marketing, communication, and engagement strategies, particularly those at the intersection of art and science.
