I arrived in a cool and cloudy Seattle this afternoon for the 46th International Conference on Health & Science Communications. This is the first time I’ve been to this conference although I’ve been involved with the HeSCA for a couple years now. It’s nice to be able to put faces to names and voices. After a thought provoking talk (details to follow later) about the early days of the association there was a fund raising auction that was a lot of fun because all the participants knew each other so well. All in all a very nice group of people.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be on a panel discussing scientific poster production (which I mentioned earlier on Visual Being). I’m going to transfer the notes I worked up in preparation for the session into my wiki and I’ll flesh them out in the next few weeks as time allows. It should be interesting to see how other organizations handle the poster creation process.
