Cultivating the Biological Sciences in Community-Engaged Scholarship

GridgeFridge — the Morgridge Center for Public Service podcast — released the second episode of its third season featuring UW–Madison doctoral student Kao Lee Yang.

Yang researches dementia as a trainee in the Neuroscience Training Program and studies public policy through the La Follette School of Public Affairs. Yang is also a Morgridge Fellow, which is a program hosted at the Morgridge Center to expand and develop Community-engaged Scholarship at UW–Madison. Furthering her community impact, Yang is the founder of HmongInBioSci, a Twitter account that serves as an online forum to uplift and celebrate Hmong-identifying academics in biological sciences.

In this episode, we talk with Yang about her research, her experience as a Morgridge Fellow and the importance of Community-engaged Scholarship on campus and beyond.
