Just two years on from the launch of ComSciCon, some of the longitudinal impacts of our programming on the graduate students who participate in ComSciCon workshops are already emerging. Here we check in with one ComSciCon alumna whose tremendous talent and skill for science communication, amplified by the connections and experiences she gained at ComSciCon, has catapulted her to remarkable success in the field of science journalism.
The culminating session at the national ComSciCon workshop of 2014 had one goal in mind: appeal to attendees to hold a local version of the workshop back at their home institutions. This goal was necessary, given that at the time approximately 850 STEM graduate students from around the country had applied for a mere 50 slots available at the national workshop.

The event brought together 50 of the brightest graduate student science communicators from around the country to participate in panel discussions, writing and editing practice, networking, and much more.
