Coronavirus Conversations

During an unprecedented time, when virtually all science communication seems to be focusing on the Coronavirus pandemic and lives literally hang in the balance, effective science communication is more important than ever. What sources should you trust? How much of the current information is accurate and being effectively communicated? How can scientists and science communicators ensure that "good" science is communicated, while combating the spread of "bad" information? Why does public trust of expertise seem to be so severely challenged right now? What roles do social media play? Join us for a discussion with a panel of renowned experts in science journalism, science writing and science communication research, who will answer these questions and others you have about science communication in the time of Coronavirus.
Our experts will be:
Dominque Brossard, PhD, Sheril Kirshenbaum, MS, MPP, Maryn McKenna, MSJ, and Dietram Scheufele, MA, PhD.
Jory Weintraub, PhD will moderate.
