Get Lit: Inspiring Undergrads to Publish in Health

Project-based, creative, interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial endeavors are the highest forms of learning.  In this session, we show how we mentored 7 different student interprofessional teams to write, illustrate and publish books on topics in STEM and public health, like diabetes, vaccines, & antibiotic stewardship. The ins and outs of production and publication will be shared for undergrads, including, but not limited to: social media use, digital crowdfunding, interprofessional communication, storyboarding, finding sponsors, and selling books.  Last, we will share stories of how students leveraged their publications into meaningful and exciting post graduate opportunities.
