University of Texas Medical Branch Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

Hi, I’m Jennifer van Alstyne

My name is Jennifer van Alstyne. I help professors and researchers communicate their work online through my company The Academic Designer LLC. I’m excited to work with you at the UTMB Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences on your social media.

Please watch this short introduction video I recorded for you.

Our social media project

To develop a strategic social media plan that shares the amazing work you do.

Organic social media is all about connecting with your audiences in ways that help both you and them. It’s a great way to stay in touch with

  • Students
  • Alumni
  • The UTMB community
  • Scientists and other researchers in your field(s)
  • The media
  • The public

To create a plan that shares the exciting work you do, I need your help.

I’m interviewing members of the UTMB Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences community. Hearing about your goals, audiences, and what you’d like to see for social media will help inform this plan.

Interviews are about 30 minutes on Zoom. I’ve reserved a bit of time after each interview in case you have questions about social media for me. You are welcome to attend final presentation meeting once the strategic social media plan is complete.

Please schedule your interview on my online calendar:
