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.

Facilitated by:

  • Meghan Riddell, assistant professor in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Physiology

Date: January 26
