Happy to note that I presented the creation, work, and characteristics of the Public Interest Group on Cancer Research in the Canadian ARCC (Applied Research and Cancer Control) Conference held early last week!!
This was our first presentation of our highly successful group in an academic/scientific setting. I could not be prouder and excited to tell the conference attendees about our work, aims, and achievements while also addressing their questions (one attendee was very interested in learning more about the research study and public outreach activity that the group developed – scientists and public members together).
It is always a great feeling to be able to talk about our work, disseminate knowledge and experience, and see where we are and what else we can do by getting fresh perspectives.
Thanking the conference organizers for giving us this chance; MUN’s Office of Public Engagement for funding this initiative, and NLSUPPORT for supporting our activities!
I would like to thank each member of this group for their dedication, work, and motivation. You all are rock!
Until next time,
