WCHRI Lunch & Learn: “How to write a lay abstract”
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.
- Meghan Riddell, assistant professor in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Physiology
