Oct 4: Talking to the Media About Science

A Public Scholarship Workshop for Faculty

October 4, 2017 at Noon
Rita Anne Rollins Room, Rollins School of Public Health
Presented in partnership with the Rollins School of Public Health 

As entire bodies of research are dismissed as hoaxes and public debates grow over the politicization of science, scientists are increasingly being called upon to explain their work in the media. In this panel, two communications professionals skilled in media training for scientists and two scientists who have looked closely at how science is represented in the media will offer their best advice for researchers speaking publicly about their work through the news.
