Youth-of-T Talks Receives Inaugural Jay Keystone Memorial Award for Innovation in Scientific Communication
In recognition of Dr. Keystone’s contribution to the education of graduate and medical students at the University of Toronto (U of T), IMS created the Jay Keystone Memorial Award for Innovation in Scientific Communication. This annual award provides a grant of up to $2,000 to a team of IMS students supported by a faculty/mentor, to create a new initiative to demonstrate innovation and excellence in the communication of medical science to diverse audiences.
The group includes Laura Best, Muzaffar Bhatti, Rachel Dadouch, Kimia Gannad-Zadeh, Jesse Knight, Swapna Mylabathula, Hannah Shuster-Hyman, Isis So, Sajeevan Sujanthan and Claire Wunker. The goal of this new initiative is to expose a young audience to the multifaceted science of climate change in an age-appropriate way and use education to empower them to partake in discussions of solutions for climate issues. Congratulations to the entire Youth-of-T Talks team and stay tuned for updates on this exciting new initiative.
