On Nov. 11 at the 2022 ABRCMS conference in Anaheim, California, the National Institutes of Health’s Diversity Program Consortium (NIH DPC) hosted a professional development session called, "How to BUILD Your Online Presence as a Scientist.”
Around 200 people attended to learn about best practices across multiple social media channels to bring attention to their research, boost their professional reputation, expand their network and balance security and privacy concerns.
The session featured DPC BUILD program alumni Angelica Alberto, DPT, Kamali Clora and Nashae Prout who shared insight for students looking to build their professional “brand” as scientists on social media. Videos of the alumni, slides and resources from the presentation are available on the Enhance Science website.
The session was facilitated by Christa Reynolds, Communications Editor for the NIH DPC, along with Hansook Oh and Ben Andrews-Zapata of the Coordination and Evaluation Center at UCLA. Oh is the Co-Director of Communication and Dissemination and Andrews-Zapata is the Senior Social Media Analyst. The team also collaborated with the other communications specialists in the DPC.
