Have you ever wondered how to fuse your creative nature with your scientific career? If so, this may be the seminar for you.  This seminar will highlight the career paths of 4 individuals who have successfully parlayed their scientific interests and experience into exciting careers within the arts.  Our panelists are affiliated with well-known entities including National Geographic, National Library of Medicine, The Smithsonian, NIH, and The Discovery Channel.  These professionals will describe how they got their foot in the door of these exciting fields, how a scientific background makes you suited for a career in science arts and communication, and the tools you need for success. Panelists will also answer attendee questions.  This event is sponsored by the FELCOM Career Development Committee. 

The event will not be videocast, but a write up of the information presented in the seminar will be available on the OITE website approximately one month after the event.
