This week at The Story Collider, we’re presenting two stories about confronting death.
Part 1: Science communicator Anthony Morgan receives an invitation to be vacuum-sealed to the bottom of a helicopter — for science!
Part 2: As a medical student, Elorm Avakame befriends a patient who is dying from alcoholism.
Anthony Morgan is the Creative Director of Science Everywhere!, an organisation devoted to adult science entertainment. The mission is to build science culture through engaging science entertainment for TV, youtube and live events. He’s also on the board of a makerspace (Site 3 CoLaboratory) and has a recurring segment on Daily Planet. His background is in neuroscience/psychology and science communication, but he fell in love with science working at the Ontario Science Centre. Since then he’s been finding as many ways and places to “mic drop science” as he can.
Elorm F. Avakame is a Pediatric resident physician at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC. He previously earned a Doctor of Medicine from Harvard Medical School and a Master’s of Public Policy from the Harvard John F. Kennedy School of Government. He was also a Sheila C. Johnson Leadership Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School’s Center for Public Leadership. Elorm is passionate about health issues affecting children in urban communities and wants to make life better for children on the margins.
