WCHRI Lunch & Learn: “How to write a lay abstract”

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 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 and CCHCSP for a Lunch & Learn on how to write an effective lay abstract. In this workshop, you will learn how to explain your grant application to lay audiences in a way that is interesting and engaging.

Learning objectives for this workshop will include:

  • How to communicate your abstract to a group of interdisciplinary peers;
  • How to communicate your abstract to the public; and
  • How to write an effective lay abstract for a grant review panel.
Facilitated by:
  • Meghan Riddell, assistant professor in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Physiology
