47th International Conference on Health and Science Communication
Tomorrow’s Technology for Today’s Needs
June 28 – July 1, 2006
Invest in yourself.
Immerse yourself in the latest communications technology and its innovative applications in science and medicine.
Have you been to a progressive dinner? For those who haven’t, it’s where you dine on each course at a different venue. Well, we’ve planned a progressive meeting for you! Why come to the nation’s capital and see only the inside of a hotel conference room?
Join us for a whirlwind journey as we examine Tomorrow’s Technology for Today’s Needs at The George Washington University Medical Center, The National Library of Medicine, The Holocaust Museum, Smithsonian Institute, and other historic locales.
Connect with other health care and science communications professionals in the areas of web site development, media production, instructional design, media library, and communications management, as we explore the following themes:
- Managing in Turbulent Times
- New Frontiers in Communication
- Education in the Digital Age
- Producing for Improved Web Site Access
Reap the benefits of:
- Keynote lectures by innovative thinkers and practitioners
- Presentations by communications experts
- Workshops on the latest production techniques
- Field trips with behind the scenes tours of Seattle landmarks
- Networking opportunities where you connect with colleagues and learn from one another.
- Media Festival awards recognizing the best productions of the year and culminating in a gala banquet and dance.
This year's meeting is taking place in Washington, DC and we’re taking advantage of the area’s resources. So bring the family a few days early or stay a few days late and enjoy all that HeSCA and our nation’s capital has to offer.
