Be afraid, be very afraid!

Actually, there’s nothing to be afraid of. We want to tell you about our Virtual Halloween Happy Hour. If you’re a scientist, researcher, social scientist, policymaker, or concerned citizen, here’s your official invite!

We’re meeting, virtually on Thursday, October 29th at 5 pm Central. Wear a scary mask, put on your best costume, or make a spooky Zoom background. We’ll give a prize to the most creative way to celebrate a scientific Halloween.

At the Missouri LSEN, we want to dispel any rumors that Missouri scientists are secretly developing a Frankenstein-like monster to read academic journals out loud until headaches are raging and ears are bleeding around the state. But we do want to highlight the scientists and researchers working to make their data more accessible and usable for everyone. We also want to encourage all state and local legislators to reach out to a scientist near you.

We are passionate about our research and passionate about uncovering new data. We are excited when our work is used to inform policy decisions. Please RSVP through the link below… if you dare. Hahahahahahah.
