I write about obesity policy-related news at blogdrtaber.wordpress.com. Blogging is a nice break from jargon-obsessed scientific writing. I think of it as a fun, candid way to discuss obesity prevention and food policy news.
Ironically, I'm an introvert who loves to talk. I frequently give public talks about food policy, obesity prevention, and systems science to diverse audiences in a variety of venues - scientific conferences, university seminars, political meetings, community forums, podcast audiences, and more.
I passionately believe that science means nothing if you don't communicate it to the right audiences. This is why I dedicate myself to writing, speaking, and using social media to discuss obesity prevention with diverse audiences. Audiences include scientific and non-scientists, graduates and undergraduates, and domestic and international leaders.
I also love communicating! It's fun to engage with people who care about the same issues (whether they agree with me or not.)
