Hello Twitch supporters new and old,
It is with great pleasure that I announce the dates for the Fall 2016 Twitch tour. I am ending a year long hiatus and will be opening up the tour once more for those who want Twitch and myself to come to their school/program. I am happy to visit classes, host school wide screenings, talk on panels, and participate in working groups, as well as screen in the surrounding community. Additionally, this year, the school/program will also receive a copy of the DVD and digital file for unlimited use in their classrooms and libraries. I hope you are excited as I am about this announcement!
Here are some basic logistics for the tour:
Dates: August 22 to November 18
Cost: $2,000 honorarium + travel/lodging
Procedure: In order to book a date for the tour, please reach out to kristen_powers at ymail.com
Audience: In the past, Twitch has been incredibly successful when screening to medical students, genetic counselors (and students), biology/neurology classes/seminars, genetic testing/counseling groups, as well as pre-med or local high school science programs. In one year, we screened to over 5,000 individuals in 30+ cities spanning 6 continents.
This is a nationwide U.S. tour so feel free to send this e-mail to interested parties from Hawaii to Maine to Texas to South Dakota! We know no bounds! I realize the cost is prohibitive for many smaller programs so I am happy to find the best ways to bring Twitch to your neighborhood by partnering with other local programs. Please don’t let cost be a deterrent to reaching out!
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the tour.
Thank you again for all your support of Twitch! We can’t wait to work with all of you in the future!
