Has it really been 2 months since my last post to the AOCS blog? Sure hope you haven’t missed reading or hearing what AOCS members are saying about AOCS. But I’m back now, rested after a nice 4 day holiday, and ready to promote AOCS.
Just this week the Professional Educators’ Common Interest Group (PE CIG) distributed its digital newsletter. And as I was reading through the articles, about their plans for the upcoming AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo, they mention “Anyone whom caught Dr. Eskin’s rap… will appreciate that (poster) submissions can be in various formats.” It had been awhile since I viewed Dr. Eskin’s rap and this newsletter prompted me to go to YouTube (channel: aocs1909) to view it yet again. If you haven’t seen his rap, I encourage you to do so now. I’ll wait for you to come back to finish reading this blog post.
Perhaps some of you remember Dr. Eskin’s musical performance at the 100th AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo? And, there is a rumor that Dr. Eskin has another rap in the making and will debut at the 104th AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo.
For his latest video, Dr. Eskin took a few moments to talk about his AOCS experience. How he was encouraged to join by Dr. Tim Mounts, how he had a great mentor in Dr. Tom Smouse, and how new researchers have a great advantage with AOCS. Why? Hear why from Dr. Eskin by viewing his other video on the AOCS YouTube channel.
I hope you enjoyed viewing Dr. Eskin’s videos. And next time you need a break from culling through large amounts of data (which reminds me – I need to review that membership survey data), or writing progress reports, go to the AOCS YouTube account. You’ll find a wide variety of videos (from book promotion, health benefits of Vitamin D, member testimonials, AOCS Year in review, and a rap) which are all work related.
