Faculty Outreach & Networking Events (FONE)
News Media & You, Apr 2010

FONE is a monthly meeting of (women and men) faculty, administrators, and staff. Each session begins with a brief presentation on one of a range of faculty development topics (grantseeking, leadership development, communicating science, etc.) followed by an opportunity to network with Brown colleagues.


We have two great presenters this month on the topic of communicating science to the news media.

  • Richard Lewis, Science Media Specialist, presents strategies for communicating effectively with the news media about your research and scientific breakthroughs. 
  • Professor Meenakshi Narain, Physics, talks about the May 5 Media Training Event being held as part of the ADVANCE-sponsored US Compact Muon Solenoid Collaboration meeting. The USCMS is the international conference of scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider. Check out the Daily Show segment on the LHC.
