Eric Jankiewicz is leaning toward a career as a health or science reporter. That’s his area of focus as a student at City University of New York.

I caught up with him after a session called “What you need to know about clinical trials but were afraid to ask.” He said that session was indicative of what he’s appreciated most about all of the sessions he’s attended.

“I think I like the blend of the panelists being very very professional – like science-kind-of-guy, and then having a reporter there as an intermediary between the scientists and the audience.” He explained, “It kind of makes it easier to understand. It takes really really dense topics and makes them interesting for a 22-year-old.”
