Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana are where scientific innovation, fragile biomes, and the dynamic energy, biotech, and biomedical industries all meet political conservatism. The issues facing science writers and communicators in the region couldn't be more diverse or important.
And yet, we hardly know each other. Despite our unique geographic and political position, the science communicators in our part of the country are only loosely connected to each other, if at all. But there's power in strong connections. Not just for professional development, but for moral support in what may be a more challenging era for science than in the past.
