Junior investigators are invited to share a 2-minute community engaged elevator pitch to receive feedback from the ACCEL Community Engagement Core and its Community Advisory Council on how to make the pitch more community friendly and increase its impact on potential audiences. The edited pitch will be re-recorded and become eligible to be awarded Pitch of the Year.
The pitch will be made during a JIN (Junior Investigator Network) call, which is a touch base call held by the network every Thursday from 9-9:20 am. During the call, investigators can share issues they are having, ask questions, and receive feedback from network participants. The agenda also typically includes a short 5-7-minute science or topic dependent presentation (i.e., writing the personal statement of the Biosketch).
The first call of the month is focused on community engagement, the following weeks are open for science or topic presentations to create deeper connections and collaborations with others. Anyone (i.e., residents, fellows, staff from other institutions) can speak at any of the calls. MUSC investigators have been guest presenters, and are encouraged to participate. Contact Erin Riegel to be added to the JIN distribution list and receive call details and network news.

Presentations are recorded and posted to the ACCEL Mentoring, Education and Career Development Zone YouTube channel.
