Learning Session: How to write a lay abstractWednesday, January 26, 2022 — 11:30am to 1:00pm
Researchers are often asked by their institutions and funders to outline the impact of their research for the general public. If you can effectively communicate your abstract in a way the public can understand, more people are likely to read, share, and participate in your research. Writing a lay abstract is also required for most grant applications.
Join WCHRI for a Learning Session on how to write an effective lay abstract.
In this interactive workshop, you will:
- be introduced to common problems and learn to identify issues with example abstracts.
- work in groups to critically evaluate example abstracts and apply what you have learned.
- gain the tools to write an effective lay abstract for a grant review panel.
This session meets the requirements for both the CCHCSP training curriculum and FGSR professional development.
- Meghan Riddell, assistant professor in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Physiology
