Elyse Aurbach and Katherine Prater

The Future Ira Flatows, Elyse Aurbach (lead) and Katherine Prater are graduate students studying anxiety and depression in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at the University of Michigan. Winners of the Community Choice prize, their submission was titled, Researchers Expanding Lay-Audience Teaching and Engagement. Through their previous experiences in outreach and education, they have realized a passion for promoting lay-audience communication, especially for the biological sciences. They are particularly enthusiastic about their proposed project RELATE, because it directly combines lay-audience engagement training with community service to target adults underserved by outreach efforts.
