Science and Media Workshop Announcement

Hi to all the members of the Science and Media Network,

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Anja Venth, the Editor of Soul Beat Africa. I have been away on maternity leave but am now back at work. I will be taking over from Gail Smith who has been doing a great job in managing the Science and Media themesite and networking space in my absense. I would like to encourage everyone to please use this space to share your information, ask questions, and to discuss issues related to Science and Media in Africa. Also, use this space to post any questions you may have around the technical aspects of using this networking space. If you would like to get hold of me directly by email, you can do so at

I wanted to alert you to a workshop we just posted onto the Science and Media which you will find here The workshop is entitled "Science Meets the Media in Stellenbosch: How Scientists and Journalists Can Make a Difference in the Public Understanding of Science".
