“We’re trying to essentially make it a fair fight,” said Sara Serritella, Director of Communications for the Institute for Translational Medicine and co-instructor of the course, in The Chicago Tribune story . “As we saw during the pandemic,this whole crisis of having to communicate science in a way that builds trust can literally be life or death.”
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded the team an Innovation Grant to launch the course. This work was also fueled by the National Institutes of Health National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program that supports the ITM.
