Greetings Southwest Chapter!
Join us for cocktails, appetizers, a Southern-style buffet dinner, and a lecture by our 2020 John P. McGovern Award for Excellence in Biomedical Communication recipient, Dr. Randy Olson. Dr. Olson is a writer and director of award-winning, and often humorous, documentary films. He is the founder and director of the Story Circles Narrative Training, a program attended by over one thousand scientists from universities and government agencies. His talk, titled Medical Obfuscation: The ABT Framework to the Rescue will offer a solution to obfuscation—the point where our thinking, and our communication about it, gets so complicated we can no longer understand each other.
In addition to his lecture at the banquet, Dr. Olson will host an afternoon workshop on the ABT Narrative Template, a tool for organizing content to tell a story. AMWA Southwest is pleased to offer this John P. McGovern Foundation-sponsored workshop at a reduced rate. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
