This workshop is part of the ASLM206 Young Professionals Course Series.

ASLM2016 will include a series of courses built into the conference schedule aimed at building analysis and communication capacity of young African laboratory professionals. The course series is sponsored by the African Journal of Laboratory Medicine, the official peer reviewed journal of ASLM, under the Journal’s mandate to build African capacity to conduct and communicate laboratory-related scientific research. The course series will be in partnership with the ASLM Academy and provide a sneak peek into the more comprehensive curriculum of similar courses offered by the ASLM Academy to laboratory professionals on a bi-annual basis.


Participants will learn how to engage their audience to give effective and memorable presentations.
