Knowledge is empowerment: FACES Scientific Writing Workshop in Kenya

Dr. Elizabeth Bukusi of KEMRI and Dr. Craig Cohen of UCSF

Family AIDS Care & Education Services (FACES) is proud of their 33 participants in the FACES Scientific Writing Workshop held in January.

The workshop offered researchers and staff from the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) the opportunity to hone their scientific writing skills and share best practices related to their work on HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, cervical cancer, and mental health. Facilitators from KEMRI, UCSF, Global Strategic Information, University of Alabama, Birmingham, University of Colorado, Denver, and Northwestern University shared their expertise in writing fundamentals, research question development, abstract writing, and manuscript drafting. As a result of this workshop, participants will be better equipped to widely share best practices in HIV care, as well as innovation in health care delivery.
