Grady-Stack medal

Me with the happy grin, and Jennifer MacLachlan from the ACS. Between us, the medal.

I’ve gotta say it’s great getting recognized for your work. As the picture above attests, I was beaming a couple of weeks ago when I received the Grady-Stack medal for science communication from the American Chemical Society.  I got to give a speech during my visit to Washington, DC, where I talked about how science communicators do their thing(s), and mentioned how important it is for this often underappreciated profession to get some love for what they do. So here’s to all science communicators. And thanks again to the ACS.
