Mortal Sins in Poster Presentations or
How to Give the Poster No One Remembers
The Public Affairs Committee has been busy making plans for the upcoming SICB 1998
Annual Meeting in Boston. This year we will sponsor a media workshop and a panel
discussion on endocrine disruptors.
Boyce Rensberger, science writer at the Washington Post, is the featured facilitator at
the Media Workshop. He will speak on media issues in presenting science to the public
(e.g., what science stories get press and why), as well as other media concerns and how
they compare to the way scientists' publish.
Featured speakers at the panel discussion on endocrine disruptors will be: Dr. Theo
Colborn, World Wildlife Foundation; Dr. Ted Shettler, Physicians for Social
Responsibility; Dr. Pete Meyers, W. Alton Jones Foundation; Dr. Lou Guillette, University
of Florida; and Dr. Tony Maciorowski, Environmental Protection Agency.
We hope that members will find time to attend both events.
