Lost In Translation: Is Science Explained Fairly in the Media
At the National Press Club in Washington, DC, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN’S CUSTOM MEDIA DIVISION brought together diverse voices from the private sector, news media and academia to discuss the challenges of effectively communicating science-related information to the public.
The program was an opportunity for attendees to directly engage with health leaders, science journalists, corporate communicators, policy experts and scientists to explore the media’s responsibility for the fair reporting of timely subjects relevant to global health, planetary sustainability and other concerns.
Sponsored by GMO Answers and Johnson & Johnson Innovation, the forum featured such luminaries as Dr. James E. Hansen, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci and Dr. Paul Offit.
