The Appalachian Science Communicators is a dynamic group of science communicators in the Appalachian region. Founded in early 2019, AppSciComm seeks to provide science communication support and camaraderie in a traditionally underserved part of the country. We welcome science communicators of every ilk – practicing journalists, institutional writers, freelancers, talkative scientists, students, podcasters and everyone in between.


A social and professional network, AppSciComm hosts regular meet-ups and events centered around the communication and understanding of science. We also have an active Facebook group where members can ask questions and seek advice from fellow science communicators.
