Just as doctors must have good bedside manner when dealing with patients, plant pathologists must be mindful of their “fieldside manner” when dealing with diverse stakeholder groups, ranging from growers to politicians. Plant pathologists have many opportunities to foster relationships and understanding with these individuals. These relationships are necessary to take our science to practice. Speakers will share their experiences and advice on effectively communicating and interacting with stakeholders.

This new APS webinar is ideal for our members and allied plant health professionals within the United States and internationally at all stages of their careers, especially those in the early and mid-career stages.
