Advancing in the Larger Scope of Your Field and Community

  • Megan A. Moreno
  • Rachel Katzenellenbogen


This chapter focuses on the next stages of what you can do in your professional societies. It is built on the foundation from chapter “ Your Scientific Community,” in which we discussed benefits and avenues to get involved in your professional societies and ways to stretch your skill sets as a manuscript and grant reviewer. This chapter will talk about next steps – ways to further your involvement, seek leadership roles, and expand the groups with which you interact to include organizations such as federal agencies.
