Early-career pain researchers and clinicians join fourth cycle of PRF Virtual Correspondents Program
Fourteen young investigators from across the globe recently became the newest class of PRF’s Virtual Correspondents Program and will soon begin their training to effectively communicate their science to a wide range of pain researchers and the broader public.
For two to three months, trainees, who represent graduate or postdoctoral programs from eight different countries, will hone their knowledge and skills of science communication by conducting interviews and podcasts with leading pain experts, providing news and virtual coverage of meetings, and publishing weekly blog posts.
Made possible by support from the Rita Allen Foundation, the competitive PRF Virtual Correspondents Program receives large numbers of applicants each cycle and is in its fourth iteration of providing this crucial training. The program is steadfast in its commitment to advance science communications and help raise awareness of chronic pain and the need for basic scientific research to address it.
