Carter Journalism Institute and contributing editor at Scientific American and columnist for Slate, was named the 2019 recipient of the Bricker Award for Science Writing in Medicine. She will present a lecture on "The joys and trials of science writing" in which she discusses how and why does someone choose a career in science journalism, and what does this kind of life entail?
