PODCAST | Part 2: AAAS S&T Policy Fellows in the Era of COVID-19
The Science & Technology Policy Fellowships at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) provide broad opportunities for scientists to engage in government policy, but COVID-19 has changed the way fellows work. The article “Serving as an STPF Fellow in the Era of COVID-19 (https://www.aaaspolicyfellowships.org/blog/serving-stpf-fellow-era-covid-19)”, co-authored by several current fellows, examines some of the ways that fellows have adapted – such as leveraging technology to create and strengthen relationships. It also suggests positive ways that communication, informational meetings, and professional development can change with teleworking. In episode two of this two-episode podcast, we speak with one of the authors of the article, STPF fellow Dr. Michael Nestor, who expands on some of the issues raised in the article.
